Before It Peers At The Edge
Of the universe, it will have to go through one final test after which the scientific operations will commence nearly 15,00,000 kilometers from Earth.
The World's Most Powerful Telescope
Recently completed the alignment process, stretching its mirrors into place and observing stars and galaxies to focus the lenses.
While The Mirrors Cool Down
To their final operating temperatures, Nasa has said that the Webb team is preparing for the thermal stability test.
The Webb Team Will Conduct
The thermal stability test on the telescope, during which scientists will measure the variations in heat by moving between the extremes of Webb’s field of view,
Erin Smith, The Webb Deputy
Observatory project scientist, said that as Webb points to different targets around the sky, the angle of the Sun on the sunshade changes, which changes the thermal profile of the observatory.
