NASA's James Webb Space Telescope Primary Mirror Fully Assembled

Using a robotic arm reminiscent of a claw machine, the team meticulously installed all of Webb's primary mirror segments onto the telescope structure. Each of the hexagonal-shaped mirror segments measures just over 4.2 feet (1.3 meters) across -- about the size of a coffee table -- and weighs approximately 88 pounds (40 kilograms). Once in space and fully deployed, the 18 primary mirror segments will work together as one large 21.3-foot diameter (6.5-meter) mirror.

"Completing the assembly of the primary mirror is a very significant milestone and the culmination of over a decade of design, manufacturing, testing and now assembly of the primary mirror system," said Lee Feinberg, optical telescope element manager at Goddard. "There is a huge team across the country who contributed to this achievement."

While the primary mirror installation may be finished on the tennis court-sized infrared observatory, there still is much work to be done.

The 18th and final primary mirror segment is installed on what will be the biggest and most powerful space telescope ever launched. The final mirror installation Wednesday at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland marks an important milestone in the assembly of the agency’s James Webb Space Telescope.

Seems like every time I find a great news and article discovery system it eventually goes away. You guys created what I consider the best one out there at the time. The spiritual successor to Findory / +Greg Linden which will always be dear to my dear to my heart. Really sorry to see you go.

Nexus Player  - 
 
Does the nexus player auto-update? I just bought one to test out and I have easily gone to the update screen 5-6 times to bringing it up to date and every time it seems like it has another update for me to run. If I leave it alone will it reboot at night and bring this thing up to date over several days? That's the way the fire tv works (i think) and it is very nice.

+Steven Fernandez​ Mine is switched off with the TV (they're all connected to a treadmill and only powered up when I'm using the treadmill) so it may be that my experience is down to being used interactively when the update is noticed and leaving it on might auto-update when the system isn't being used. If others are seeing their systems auto-update without interaction then just leave it on for a while and see what happens.

Why run the beta channel?

I have several Chromebooks and most are on the beta channel but is there anywhere I can find a current list of features only available in the beta channel? I'm familiar with http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/ but it's not the easiest stuff to read if you just want the highlights.

The beta channel get updated every 1-2 weeks while the Stable channel only once a month (I say only but once a month is pretty Dang good) so its an ever changing list of added/deleted features.
