Webb Space Telescope Reaches Destination a Million Miles From Earth – Achieves “Halo” Orbit Around L2

January 24, 2022, just after 11a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET, Webb reached its final destination.

NASA engineers powered Webb's thrusters for nearly five minutes to perfect the probe's positioning.

"Webb, welcome home!" NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in an official NASA statement. "Congratulations to the team for all of their hard work ensuring Webb's safe arrival at L2 today. We're one step closer to uncovering the mysteries of the universe.

"Science that is considered transformational — that will change our view of the universe"

"The launch of the Webb Space Telescope is a pivotal moment -- this is just the beginning for the Webb mission," said Gregory L. Robinson, Webb's program director at NASA Headquarters.

"Now we will watch Webb's highly anticipated and critical 29 days on the edge. When the spacecraft unfurls in space, Webb will undergo the most difficult and complex deployment sequence ever attempted in space. Once commissioning is complete, we will see awe-inspiring images that will capture our imagination."

The James Webb Telescope, #JWST, is more specialised than the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Webb captures the infrared part of the spectrum, the light that human eyes cannot see...
The #JWST is designed to go, and take our vision, far beyond what the Hubble telescope can do...
