After completion of its vibration and acoustic testing in March, the James Webb Space Telescope – JWST – is shown here undergoing a detailed 'lights out' inspection in one of NASA's cleanrooms at the Goddard Space Flight Center.

James Webb space telescope completes acoustic and vibration tests

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland the James Webb Space Telescope team completed the acoustic and vibration portions of environmental testing on the telescope. These tests are merely two of the many that spacecraft and instruments endure to ensure they are fit for spaceflight.

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

last monthTechnology / 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...

James Webb Space Telescope To Search for Second Earth Among Weird Habitable Worlds in the TRAPPIST-1 Solar System

In a couple of years, Hubble's successor, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will conduct follow-up observations of the dim ultracool TRAPPIST-1 dwarf star system 40 light-years away and find out if any of its seven Earth-sized planets have an atmosphere...        

This telescope can see back in time, almost to the beginning of our universe

2 months agoHealth : The Checkup

The James Webb Space Telescope, now at NASA Goddard in Greenbelt, Md., is designed to gather light emitted early in the history of the universe, some 13.7 billion years ago, when the first stars and galaxies were forming. It will give scientists the deepest look into space and back in time.

NASA's Webb Telescope team prepares for earsplitting acoustic test

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Inside NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland the James Webb Space Telescope team completed the environmental portion of vibration testing and prepared for the acoustic test on the telescope.

NASA gives the Webb Telescope a shakedown

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Scientists and engineers had many challenges in designing the components of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope and then had to custom design and build ways to test it.

NASA restarts rigorous vibration testing on the James Webb Space Telescope

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Testing on the James Webb Space Telescope successfully resumed last week at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, Maryland.

NASA's Webb Telescope to resume vibration testing in January

Vibration tests are one of the many tests that spacecraft and instruments endure to ensure they are fit for spaceflight. During routine testing of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, an unexpected response occurred from several of the more than 100 devices designed to detect small changes in the motion of the structure.
