Quoted:
“ATK’s completion of the flight backplane is a significant indicator of the major progress the program is making,” said Scott Willoughby, Webb Telescope vice president and program manager, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. “We are moving steadily forward in the march to launch in 2018, thanks to the outstanding efforts of our teammate ATK.”

Quoted: "Without science data, there would be no mission, so this is a very important milestone for the Webb program," said Scott Willoughby, vice president, Webb program manager, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "All the digital data Webb gathers about our universe, as it was 13.5 billion years ago, is stored on the onboard solid state recorder until it is delivered to the world's scientists."

Nice
 
Read about and watch the video describing the amazing technology going into the James Webb Telescope! Think using a laser beam to measure optical surfaces to incredible tolerances.

"Social media gave people the ability to communicate that they felt this wasn't just important for astrophysics, but important for the future of science and leadership."

Here is my concern with this. The quoted a price, and got it approved and then they multiplied the price. There had to be some really gross negligence somewhere in the planning, or something else. Why does it cost so much more than originally quoted and it is still not finished. The equipment and what it will do is not at issue here. I am all for this thing, but why does it have to be like this?
