It's springtime and the deployed primary mirror of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope looks like a spring flower in full bloom.

In this photo, NASA technicians lifted the telescope using a crane and moved it inside a clean room at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Once launched into space, the Webb telescope’s 18-segmented gold mirror is specially designed to capture...

The towering primary mirror of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope stands inside a cleanroom at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, where it will undergo its last cryogenic test before it is launched into space in 2018. In preparation for testing, the “wings” of the mirror (which consist of the three segments on each side) were spread open. This photo shows one fully deployed wing, and one...

In this photo, the James Webb Space Telescope has just arrived at Ellington Field, in Houston, Tx from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The telescope was safely ensconced in a special transporter case (called the Space Telescope Transporter for Air, Road, and Sea, or STTARS) which attaches to a truck. Webb telescope was first driven from NASA Goddard to Andrews, and then put in a C-5 cargo...

James Webb Space Telescope Arrives at NASA’s Johnson Space Center

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has arrived at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, where it will undergo its last cryogenic test before it is launched into space in 2018.

The telescope was loaded onto a trailer truck from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and moved slowly down a highway by...

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has successfully passed the center of curvature test, an important optical measurement of Webb’s fully assembled primary mirror prior to cryogenic testing, and the last test held at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, before the spacecraft is shipped to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston for more testing.

After undergoing rigorous...

Preparations continue for the James Webb Space Telescope's upcoming trip to NASA Johnson for testing. Here the telescope is lifted to a stand in the giant cleanroom at NASA Goddard, so it can be rotated. The mirror's two "wings" are folded back, and its secondary mirror is stowed. This is the position the mirrors will be in for launch - as well as for the trip to Johnson Space Center....

Yes! We'll be able to observe Europa's plumes directly, as well as changes in the moon's surface due to this activity. We'll be able to characterize the composition of Europa's plumes in a way not possible from the ground, with unique wavelength coverage & sensitivity.

Here's a short video look at the technical information Webb could help us learn about the composition of Europa's plumes....
