The James Webb Space Telescope's Sunshield

2016-11-08 - The James Webb Space Telescope's sunshield at Northrop Grumman Space Park in Redondo Beach, California. With a surface area the size of a tennis court, the sunshield will help keep the telescope cool so that it can image the formation of stars and galaxies created more than 13.5 billion years ago.
