James Webb, in his technology, is a hundred times more sensitive than Hubble and will observe the universe in the infrared spectrum.
space telescope James Webb It was launched last Saturday (12/25) from a European Space Agency (ESA) base in French Guiana in South America, and last Monday (12/27) it underwent a second maneuver to correct its course. The process took about 9 minutes and 27 seconds and caused the telescope to follow the desired orbit.
This space telescope is the largest and most powerful ever launched. Its technology has the ability to reach a solar orbit at a distance of 1.6 million kilometers from Earth. James Webb will orbit a much further distance than its predecessor – the 30-year-old Hubble Space Telescope.
James Webb, in his technology, is a hundred times more sensitive than Hubble and will observe the universe in the infrared spectrum. With this, it will be possible to see beyond the clouds of gas and dust where stars appear. James Webb is slowly being maneuvered early on in its launch because it is a mission-preserving strategy.
To reach Lagrange (L2) in the system formed between the Earth and the Sun, the telescope must be launched by the rocket with a smaller pulse. After all, if she received a larger impulse, she would not be able to return to the conduction movement to the ground. The optics will be exposed directly and the telescope’s structure will be exposed to the sun, which can cause it to overheat.
Now James Webb is entering the publishing phase. It is also called a transplant and requires a lot of attention and, in general, takes 30 days of intense work and a lot of stress on the part of the telescope control teams.
