At this moment it is already on its way to its operational destination, the Lagrangian point L2, 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, and when you guys listen to these words of mine, probably the first days of January, Webb will have already completed the deployment of the big sunshield, one of the most complex and dangerous operations.
The Webb Telescope, in fact, has passed unscathed the Russian roulette of the launch, but in front of him still has a long journey full of pitfalls, which in the next six months could endanger the success of the mission at any stage.
On December 29, the day Webb also passed the Moon’s orbit, NASA announced that Ariane had performed so well during launch that the telescope now has much more fuel available than we’d hoped for…In fact, Ariane was so precise in drawing Webb’s trajectory to the Lagrangian L2 point that further future course corrections are unnecessary.
