Operation Ariane 5 rocket Ariane Space with James Webb Space Telescope on the launch pad of the French Guiana Space Center in South America, last night Completed December 23 (December 2).

The James Webb is an infrared Space Telescope with a large 6.5-meter primary mirror. This observatory will study every stage of the history of the universe, from within our solar system to the most distant galaxies visible early in the universe.

After decades of extensive preparation and delay, this powerful observatory for Space travel has finally arrived. 6 million kilometers are ready. The Web, an international partnership between NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, was previously targeted for launch in 2007 and is now ready to go into Space and open after several changes, updates and delays. The human eye is on the unknowns of the universe.

Launcher The Telescope is housed inside the rocket nose chamber, which keeps the observatory at a controlled temperature and humidity. A set of missiles and cargo have been transferred to the launch pad; Where the final preparations for the launch operation are underway. This process involves filling the main fuel tanks with liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen and checking their electrical and software settings.

About 20 minutes before launch, the web is transferred to the internal battery. Then all that is left for the giant Arian 5 Telescope and rocket is to get the final confirmation of the launch and go to the sky.

If the weather is favorable and everything goes according to plan, this giant observatory in Christmas is leaving Earth and it takes about a month to reach its final destination in space. Then, by opening its large golden mirror, it helps scientists study how galaxies and stars form and search for alien worlds that could possibly host life.
