I am SO anticipating the wonders we'll glean with this new device once it hits space/first light!!

"(Phys.org) —NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has passed its first significant mission milestone for 2014—a Spacecraft Critical Design Review (SCDR) that examined the telescope's power, communications and pointing control systems.

"This is the last major element-level critical design review of the program," said Richard Lynch, NASA Spacecraft Bus Manager for the James Webb Space Telescope at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "What that means is all of the designs are complete for the Webb and there are no major designs left to do.""

"(Phys.org) —A major piece of the James Webb Space Telescope, the mirror's primary backplane support, arrived Aug. 22 at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., for testing in the X-ray and Cryogenic Test Facility. The backplane is the backbone of the telescope, supporting its 18 beryllium mirrors, instruments and other elements while the telescope is looking into deep space.

James Webb Telescope's last backbone component completed

"(Phys.org) —Assembly of the backbone of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, the primary mirror backplane support structure, is a step closer to completion with the recent addition of the backplane support frame, a fixture that will be used to connect all the pieces of the telescope together.

The backplane support frame will bring together Webb's center section and wings, secondary mirror support structure, aft optics system and integrated science instrument module. ATK of Magna, Utah, finished fabrication under the direction of the observatory's builder, Northrop Grumman Corp."

Look ma' I got wings!

"(Phys.org) —A massive backplane that will hold the primary mirror of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope nearly motionless while it peers into space is another step closer to completion with the recent assembly of the support structure's wings.

The wings enable the mirror, made of 18 pieces of beryllium, to fold up and fit inside a 16.4-foot (5-meter) fairing on a rocket, and then unfold to 21 feet in diameter after the telescope is delivered to space. All that is left to build is the support fixture that will house an integrated science instrument module, and technicians will connect the wings and the backplane's center section to the rest of the observatory. The center section was completed in April 2012."

Interact with NASA at the James Webb Space Telescope Exhibit and See Hubble's Successor

When:  Friday, March 8, through Sunday, March 10
Where: SXSW, Austin, TX, Lawn outside the Long Center
Cost:  Free

NASA’s successor to Hubble, the James Webb Space Telescope, will be 100 times more powerful. The Webb Telescope will orbit far beyond Earth’s Moon where the cold vastness of space will allow it to study the universe’s first galaxies as well as celestial objects hidden by clouds of cosmic dust. Stop by the lawn outside the Long Center (701 W. Riverside Drive, Austin, TX) March 8-10 to see Northrop Grumman’s tennis-court-sized, four-story-high, full-scale model of the Webb Telescope. Learn about the vision behind Webb and the challenges of its construction in this immersive experience that showcases the science, images and technologies changing our understanding of the universe.  Free to the public, this exhibit features Microsoft’s interactive World Wide Telescope and activities with NASA that demonstrate how Webb will inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers to push the boundaries of science and technology. Delve in for an in-depth look at the perplexing questions that this incredible telescope is designed to answer, such as: How did the universe form? Is our solar system unique? Are we alone in the cosmos?

Hubble and Webb Space Telescope iBooks are out!

Just in time for Xmas, and they are free!

Check these out, they are really well done and do a great job of showing some of the capabilities of the spacecraft.

Let me know what you think!

Under printable products your going to want to get the "Webb Science Guide"....there is some really fantastic information in there not only about the Webb Telescope but about the universe and space itself. I loved reading this so much I am about to go back through for a 2nd time. Enjoy!

Read about Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, and the special event at the South by Southwest festival last month that introduced the telescope to the people of Austin in a new CNN "Lightyears" blog entry written by Webb's deputy project scientist, Jason Kalirai.

JWST undergoes mirror placement test

"(Phys.org) —NASA engineers and scientists have been making practice runs to ensure the placement of primary mirror segments on the James Webb Space Telescope go perfectly when the flight equipment is ready. NASA issued a video and photos showing the practice run in the giant clean room at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md."

JWST Deployment will take a while

Here's a good graphic showing the timeline of #JWST deployment.  Very shortly after launch, Webb will begin to unfold with the whole thing hung out and ready for observations 14 days later.

JWST: The Largest Telescope Ever Launched

Made this a long time ago to highlight some of the things JWST will be able to show us.  I need to update this and add some more information, but everything in here still applies.

Let me know what you think!
