Making a $10B Investment Deliver - Livestream

Marcia Rieke

The launch and deployment of the James Webb Space Telescope went flawlessly. The telescope and instruments began cooling as soon as the sun shield was deployed, and once the temperature of the short wavelength detectors in NIRCam dropped below 120 K, the telescope alignment process began. This process will result in the instruments receiving diffraction-limited imagery from the telescope. In addition to commissioning the telescope, all four instruments will also be checked and performance measured to ensure that science observations can proceed smoothly later this year.
