Moons Orbit are Far from the Region Of NASA

The James Webb Space Telescope will be launched by NASA this Saturday 25 in a project that spanned three decades between conception construction and sending to outer space In partnership with the European Space Agency ESA in English and the Canadian Space Agency ASC in English the equipment will replace the famous Hubble telescope launched in 1990

The James Webb has a set of primary mirrors 65 meters in diameter according to NASA The structure is composed of 18 goldplated hexagonal mirrors coupled to the remaining segments of the telescope The James Webb weighs 65 tons and has an electrical power of 2000 watts

On January 20 2017 James Webbs mirrors were placed in a chamber that simulates outer space specifications such as temperature The structure came to face 236°C and passed the tests carried out by NASA engineers

The powerful mirrors of the James Webb rated by NASA as the most powerful telescope ever created by man will observe the evolution of galaxies as well as the formation of the first galaxies and stars The equipment will capture infrared light and turn it into information for NASA scientists

To protect the telescopes entire vital system NASA designed five plates of a special material the dimensions of a tennis court Equipment such as the solar panels to power the James Webb were placed below these structures

The telescope will be launched from the Ariane 5 rocket at the Kourou Space Center in French Guiana The territory a region of France in South America borders the Brazilian state

Built in California USA the James Webb was shipped by sea to French Guiana the launch site To reach the country the telescope even had to cross the Panama Canal an artificial channel that connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans

The James Webb telescope will only reach final orbit in March according to NASA estimates The equipment will be more than 15 million km from Earth at a point in space called Lagrange L2 Point

Because it is beyond the Moons orbit and far from the region in which current manned space shuttles can reach inperson maintenance on the James Webb should not be done It is estimated that the telescope has a useful life of about ten years

The James Webb Space Telescope will be launched by NASA this Saturday 25 in a project that spanned three decades between conception construction and sending to outer space In partnership with the European Space Agency ESA and the Canadian Space Agency ASC the equipment will replace the famous Hubble telescope launched in 1990.
