Webb Telescope 19

Webb Telescope

This is one of my favorite projects.  The Webb telescope will be able to "see" the way galaxies formed after the big bang.  This is a very exciting advancement in human capabilities.  Also, the construction of the telescope reflector framework is made from carbon fiber and cyanate ester resin composites that minimize the effect of thermal expansion.  The multiple layers under the "mirror" protect it from extreme tempeartures from the sun.  (Testing to see if I could add images, edit text, etc.)
