AstroNights LIVE: The Nuts and Bolts of the James Webb Space Telescope

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Can origami help scientists alter our understanding of the universe? The answer is yes! Webb is a revolutionary successor to the Hubble Telescope and 100 times more powerful. It has taken 100 million hours of people’s lives to build Webb. An international team of engineers created an origami-styled observatory that can be neatly folded inside a conventional rocket and then unfolded once in space. Get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most daring scientific missions ever attempted!
