JWST Pathfinder in front of Chamber A

The full-scale ‪James Webb Space Telescope pathfinder (test version of our backplane) shown going into NASA Johnson's huge Chamber A for cryogenic testing. You can see the two spare primary mirror segments (one gold, one silver) mounted on it - the boom that holds the secondary mirror is fully extended. ‪
