Atlas, the spacecraft reached the upper atmosphere of the Earth and the nose chamber was detached to place the Telescope close to space.
About 8 minutes and 50 seconds after launch, the main stage of the rocket was successfully detached so that the spacecraft alone With the high stage of Arian 5 rocket in space, move towards Lagrangian point 2. After the fire in the upper stage of the rocket was extinguished and about 27 minutes after launch, this stage was separated so that the Web space Telescope could continue its 1.6 million-kilometer path alone.
At this stage, The upper stage of the rocket broadcast a spectacular image of the Telescope alone in space.

Solar arrays are now well open to power the spacecraft. While the mission control team describes the situation quite optimally, the Web is now in the right direction, with six responsive wheels responsible for holding the spacecraft in that direction.
The Web Telescope is now moving fast in space, and During the next week, the first step of the installation is to open its large sun visor to protect the complex from the sun and heat. The observatory will be stationed in its final orbit at point L2 within the next month, and now it will be another anxious month for scientists and science enthusiasts.
