    Stop by this YouTube video and watch the magic unfold as the JWST observatory deploys during it’s journey to a final orbit around the 2nd Lagrange point, about 1 million miles from earth. JWST Deployment Sequence

    NASA Clean RoomWatch the JWST Telescope get assembled in the NASA Goddard clean room. The Telescope structure was assembled in the NG high bay and shipped to Goddard in Greenbelt, MD, where the beryllium mirror segments are being mounted to the structure. Watch this happen on the live webcam.

    Did you watch the show on Science Channel called Telescope? It features a number of our NG teammates talking about JWST, which is currently being assembled at Space Park and NASA Goddard. Final assembly will be here. At some point, we should see if we can get a TRA tour!

    If you missed the show, you can stream it on the Discovery channel website at http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/telescope/videos/telescope/
