James Webb Space Telescope Structure Poised for Mirror Assembly

Inside the massive clean room at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland the James Webb Space Telescope's telescope structure was lifted and lowered by crane onto the bright yellow optical assembly stand. The Webb telescope team is preparing to begin placement of all 18 of the telescope's primary flight mirrors onto the structure.
