Why the Hell Does the James Webb Space Telescope Look Haunted?

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

One of the most powerful telescopes ever built—NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope—is set to make its big debut in 2018. But before it starts scouring distant galaxies, or searching for life around at TRAPPIST-1, the telescope must undergo quite a bit of testing. Apparently, during “lights out inspections,” James Webb… Read more...
