The James Webb Space Telescope, which will be used to observe the universe and was launched on Christmas Day, You have already modified the path towards your destination in spaceLagrange Point II, located 1.5 million km from Earth.
The machine costing about 10 billion dollars, A joint project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, it lifted off on an Ariane 5 rocket from the French port of Guyana, the agency said. France Press agency.
The first maneuver to correct a missile’s trajectory to reach its target It happened on December 26, after an engine ignition that lasted 45 minutes and was completed successfully.
Impulse ignition is one of two important stations in timeAfter the solar panels are deployed, the rocket must accelerate to the correct speed in three stages, being careful not to introduce too much thrust as there will only be three trajectory correction maneuvers in total.
NASA has a detailed plan to deploy the telescope The agency stated that in about two weeks, it is scheduled to be inserted 29 days after launch into the orbit of the Lagrange Point. DPA.
As it was explained Its fate is that it is balanced between the gravitational forces of the sun and the earth, you will maintain the same trend with respect to both, and titration and prevention will be easier. The deployment process is not an automatic, uninterrupted sequence, but rather is controlled by the NASA team, which monitors Webb in real time and can pause deployment at any time.
This means that deployment may not happen exactly in the order or times originally planned. Astronomers also hope that the Webb telescope will be Drive the discovery of space worlds.
Begonia Viña, chief systems engineer for the James Webb Telescope, who works at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, reported on YouTube that the telescope It will allow studying the formation of the first galaxies and stars after the Big BangAs well as planets inside and outside the system as published Tellam.
