The James Webb Space Telescope’s cryogenic vacuum testing at our Johnson Space Center verified it’s ready for the cold, harsh environment of space, and its mission to uncover a part of the universe we have not seen. From distant worlds orbiting other stars, to mysterious cosmic structures, Webb could help answer questions about our universe and our place in it. Launch of Webb is set for 2019. Also, Flight through Orion Nebula, 360 Degree View from the Center of the Galaxy, and Raging Water on Launch Pad!
