Time lapse video of two dozen engineers and technicians to properly install the package of scientific instruments James Webb Space Telescope in the telescope structure.
These scientific instruments are known as the Integrated Science Instrument Module, or ISIM, and is the collection of cameras, spectrographs, and fine guidance systems that help record the light collected by the giant mirror gold Webb. In most cleanroom World Center of NASA Goddard in Greenbelt, Maryland Spaceflight, equipment crane lifted in the package of heavy scientific instruments, lowered in an enclosure at the rear of the telescope, and He ensures that the telescope. This entire installation process took about 17 hours to complete.
