14h16 : Hello. In fact I misunderstood the telescope’s target (bug fixed): it was heading towards a point 1.5 million kilometers away in the opposite direction to the sun. ESA Published a very clear map (But title in English). The space is protected from light and heat from the sun to maintain the minimum temperature required to observe the infrared rays.
13h42 : Probably on the other side of the Moon (Sun is 150 million km from Earth)
13h36 : Our colleagues Guyana 1st They have prepared a comprehensive article presenting ten things to know about this telescope and its design. This triggers a shortcoming mentioned by some of you in the comments: its cost is multiplied by 20 over growth and reaches $ 10 billion. A slate was shared between Europe, the United States and Canada.
16h42 : The James Webb telescope, which is dead to enter the rocket that launches it, must use a sophisticated technical action. It is especially fitted with sunscreen, which must protect it during its journey and provide it with energy.
13h38 : Unlike his predecessor Hubble, James Webb is not going to position himself in orbit around the Earth. Its target is at a distance of 1.5 million kilometers, in the opposite direction to the Sun, at what is known as the Second Lock Range Point. He should achieve it in a month. Once there, he will begin a phase of testing his tools. Observations will begin in six months.
13h24 : Thrusters and rocket fairing successfully released. The main site will be in six minutes. And 27 minutes after the telescope was launched, it completely detached from its missile at 1:47 p.m.
14h17 : Why is this new telescope important? Let me see you once again for an article by our journalist Louis Chan explaining how This will provide new possibilities for observing space, And he observes the formation of the first galaxies, especially in distant parts of the universe.
