About this deal

Zoom In/Out : Use the + or - buttons in upper right to zoom the plot over all. Use the magnifying glass to select a specfic part of the plot and zoom in. Use the "home" button to reset the plot to original state. The collected data for each WhereIsWebb temperature observation point is plotted with launch+day on the X axis. Plots/temperatures are updated daily during Webb's cool down and then weekly through the end of commissioning once Webb's temperatures are at operational levels (see blog: Final Temperature? ). Temperatures are updated once per day during Webb's cool down and then weekly through the end of commissiong once they are at operational levels (see blog: Final Temperature? ). In general, temperatures change slowly so this frequency is sufficient to give a snapshot of overall trends. Temperatures are rounded to the nearest whole number and displayed in the users choice of Farenheit or Celsius along with Kelvin in parentheses. What you see now is the final state of Webb as it entered 'Ongoing Science Operations Mode'. The temperatures displayed show that they have reached and are maintained at a narrow band steady state. You can explore the entire annotated deployment and commissioning process on the Webb Deployment Explorer.

You can EXPLORE past and upcoming deployments on the way to L2 and through commissioning. The Deployment Explorer opens to the most recently completed (unless noted as "Status:Ongoing" ) deployment/commissioning step, all steps to the "left" (on the top thumbnail nav) are COMPLETED, all steps to the "right" (on the top thumbnail nav) are FUTURE.Measure the physical and chemical properties of planetary systems, including our own Solar System, and investigate the potential for life in those systems Data Values: data values can be seen for each point plotted by hovering over the traces (tap on touch devices), the trace name and values are displayed in a pop up message. Panning : Use the arrow tool button in upper right to pan the plot. This is especially useful once you have zoomed in. Webb is the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It studies every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.

NASA Eyes allows you to manipulate a 3d Webb model in our 3d solar system. It loads with Webb in the center of the 'scene'. You can then manipulate Webb/scene. Beside basic 3d manipulation of the X, Y, and Z axes and zooming in and out, there are many other features that literally allow you to EXPLORE Webb and our solar system. Many of these are detailed below. Webb in 3d Solar System FEATURES: Numerous scientists involved with the Nexus for Exoplanet System Science ( NExSS) have been and continue to be a part of the Webb mission. NExSS is a NASA Research Coordination Network ( RCN) dedicated to studying planetary habitability. Data from Webb is important in investigating the diversity of exoplanets and to learning how their history, geology, and climate interact to create the conditions for life.

Major Innovations

Measure the physical and chemical properties of planetary systems and investigate the potential for life in those systems The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) is a large infrared telescope with an approximately 6.5 meter primary mirror. Webb successfully launched from ESA's spaceport in French Guiana on December 25, 2021 07:20am EST ( 2021-12-25 12:20 GMT/UTC) . The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) is the premier space-based observatory of the next decade. Webb is a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror. It will serve thousands of astronomers worldwide.

Compare Webb's size to other objects like a school bus or Hubble: Use the 'Compare' link at bottom of the title/ID panel to cycle through a list of objects. Locating the Observation Points : this button will open a panel to identify the locations of the temperature observation points on the spacecraft.

The Story of Webb Gallery. the premier observatory of the next decade Labelled Spacecraft : Above the Eyes panel is a button to pop-up a labelled spacecraft image to help you identify Webb's subsystems as you move around it in 3d. Researchers supported by the NASA Astrobiology program are involved in numerous aspects of the Webb mission. Data from Webb will be used to study the formation and evolution of habitable worlds, and will be invaluable in understanding processes that have shaped habitability in our own solar system. Webb is capable of making detailed observations that might one day allow astrobiologists to identify signatures of life on Earth-like planets beyond our Solar System. L2 is approximately 1 million miles from Earth (932056 miles/1.5M km to be exact). But Webb never actually arrives at L2, it is travelling to enter an orbit around L2. Webb's L2 orbit is very large in size and it enters its orbit before it reaches the linear distance between Earth and L2. Webb's orbit around L2 is known as a halo orbit which, rather than a single path, is an orbit that periodically varies through a series of paths around L2.
