JWST (James Webb Space Telescope) of NASA is much Closer to its Final Launch
The JWST (James Webb Space Telescope) of NASA worth 8.8 billion U.S dollars has just left the thermal vacuum chamber. The JWST has spent at least 3 months in the thermal vacuum chamber in order to examine its paces in a series of hardcore cryogenic tests. Scientists needed to make sure the optical elements and instruments of the telescope to be able for proper function in the cold, airless conditions of space. The NASA results of studies have indicated that the engineers are now busy in putting JWST back together again in preparation for its expected launch in the spring of 2019.
JWST will take to the skies from a European spaceport in French Guiana. It will start its journey to the sun-Earth Lagrange point 2. It is situated at least 930,000 miles away from our Earth. The JWST will operate in infrared waves to peer into the deepest, oldest parts of the universe, like its predecessor the Hubble Space Telescope. The expected launch date has already been pushed back at least 2 times due to integration issues. But, the JWST has been considered the most powerful telescope with its kind and a significant amount of potential to unlock the secrets of life as we know it. It shouldn’t be considered a big surprise that NASA is taking the time to make sure everything is perfect.
