This is a crucial step for the success of this mission which has just been completed. The James Webb space telescope has, in fact, successfully completed the full deployment of its heat shield on Tuesday.
This success is an essential element for conducting future observations of the cosmos, NASA said.
This shield is made up of five layers each the size of a tennis court, intended to protect scientific instruments from the heat of the Sun. They have been carefully unfolded and stretched one by one since Monday.
