VIDEO: Highbay Integration Progress of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST)

Watch a time lapse video of the integration progress of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in Northrop Grumman’s Redondo Beach facilities! Northrop Grumman is proud to lead the industry team building JWST. This revolutionary observatory is the largest telescope built for space and the most powerful infrared telescope ever made. It is the scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The Webb telescope will travel 1 million miles from earth and look back over 13.5 billion years, providing images of the first galaxies formed and observing unexplored planets around distant stars. The breakthrough technology developed for the Webb Telescope will expand our understanding of the universe, rewrite textbooks and inspire a future generation of engineers and scientists.
