After launch, the telescope deployed on its 30-day, million-mile journey out to the second Lagrange point (L2). This video shows the deployment procedure, timeline, and location of the satellite during deployment.
- Is this telescope just a more modern telescope than Hubble?
- Why does it take 30 days to reach its orbit?
- What's a Lagrange point?
- Why did it launch from French Guiana in the Amazon rain forrest?
- What is the sling shot effect?
Enquiring minds want to know while they do the math!
