On the 25th of December last year the James Webb Telescope started it’s yourney into space. In total it costs incredible 10 billion dollar to develop! After being deployed in space, it also takes some 29 days to get to the right destination, which is a gravitationally stable spot about 1.5 million kilometers from our planet. Also, unfolding all it’s parts is a risky operation. Luckily, just today, a press release said that the sunshield deployment is completed successfully!

This video explains the “insane engineering of the James Webb Telescope”:

Let’s hope, for the sake of science, that it will work (well)!
