Northrop Grumman is proud to lead the industry team building NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. This revolutionary observatory is the largest telescope built for space and the most powerful infrared telescope ever made. It is the scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The Webb telescope will travel 1 million miles from earth and look back over 13.5 billion years, providing images of the first galaxies formed and observing unexplored planets around distant stars. The breakthrough technology developed for the Webb Telescope will expand our understanding of the universe, rewrite textbooks and inspire a future generation of engineers and scientists.

This animation captures Webb’s journey into orbit, 1 million miles away from earth, depicting the sequence of events surrounding the launch and deployment of this game changing observatory. The travel time, distance and transformation of the telescope as it deploys are included in this sequence.

Sounds like a ton of stuff has to go "as planned" or this project could end up like zuma.

Rockets to nowhere... keep in mind that the globe Earth theory is just indoctrination. Research Globaltatis. It destroys critical thinking and gives you hallucinations that you are spinning at breakneck speeds...

Amazing. We are so clever... shame about our inhuman, human history. I can't wait to see what this and the other telescope in the 1 million mile orbit will show us. So clever... mesmerising.. wonderful... truly well done mankind. We are capable of good things.. here's to our future, cheers. We'll need the warp drive though, don't you think ??

If i was them i might wana think twice before launching this baby up into space. Nasa..spacex..and others are being exposed of the fraud.. So you might wana cancel this project. The ending result may not be so wonderful.

Data gathered by JWST will prove ignoring our existence allows us to more fully know nothing about anything.

This narrator is horrible. I have heard fifth graders read better. And the music is beyond annoying.

This is an amazing video! I heard this telescope will be better than the Hubble Space Telescope.

All through this absolutely fascinating short documentary my thoughts were/are that's a lot of things that can go wrong. No doubt hundreds if not thousands of highly skilled and gifted individuals are working together to ensure it goes smoothly.
