29 Days on the Edge

This Webby Award nominated video captures the the harrowing 29 days following liftoff. Thousands of parts must work correctly, in sequence, to unfold Webb and put it in its final configuration, all while it flies through the expanse of space alone, to a destination nearly one million miles away.

The Elements of Webb

Webby Award Nominated - Elements of Webb explores why engineers chose to use different materials on the James Webb Space Telescope. Webb towers three stories tall, and has a tennis court sized sunshield and is twice the size of the Hubble Space Telescope, yet Webb is half Hubble’s weight. Why? Engineers precisely chose the right materials.
