Almost a year after it was supposed to be the launch of NASA has finally reached the James Webb Space Telescope, the long-awaited successor of the Hubble Space Telescope (right).

As an agency of the government, saying that the two halves of the telescope were joined earlier in the week, Redondo Beach, Calif., where engineers will use a crane to bring the telescope along. The next step will be to electrically connect to the telescope and put it to the test.

“The installation of the telescope’s scientific instruments, the proprietary sunshield, and the spacecraft will be in an observatory, will give an incredible performance by the whole team, howard Webb,” said Bill, Dressing, Webb, project manager, in a statement. “This milestone represents the efforts of thousands of dedicated professionals for more than 20 years by NASA, the European Space Agency, the Canadian Space Agency, Northrop Grumman, and the rest of our industrial and academic partners.”

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted about the performance, calling it a “significant milestone.”

The following are the steps to the telescope, the engineering and the implementation of the five-layer proprietary sunshield, which NASA said is “designed to keep track of Webb’s mirrors and scientific instruments in the cold due to the blocking of the infrared light from the Earth, the Moon and the Sun.” The space agency added that the implementation of the proprietary sunshield is critical to mission success.”

After the last test, including the environment and the implementation of testing of the James Webb telescope will launch into space in 2021. The Software continues to allow an incredible discovery ever since its launch into space in April 1990.
