Environmental tests
In October 2020, testing teams at Northrop Grumman in Redondo Beach, California, for the very time lifted the fully assembled James Webb Space Telescope in order to prepare it for transport to nearby acoustic and sine-vibration testing facilities. With final systems tests scheduled in early 2021, the space telescope should be ready for shipment to the Kourou space port next summer. Credits: NASA/Chris Gunn.
