The James Webb Space Telescope begins final checks before science observations

NASA’s next-generation observatory is entering the final stages of preparation before showing scientists an entirely new view of the universe.

Engineers are preparing to make final adjustments to instruments aboard the James Webb Space Telescope as the observatory prepares to operate this summer. NASA said the telescope has “calibrations and characterizations of instruments using a rich variety of astronomical sources” coming soon to make sure everything works before Webb is released to examine the early universe.
