This short vid shows a model of the JWST and discusses the role of the heat shields and the telescope's position in space. Also a rather nice NASA redhead!
Very cool stuff. Thanks for the link.Nice explanation of the next deployments and milestones
And there's only enough fuel on board for 10 years of manoeuvering, so after that she'll be dead, Jim.Somethings I didn't realize - the shield is the size of a tennis court, it will be 6 months before everything is done and working. It will be a million miles from earth so no do-overs and hoping for the best.
