The unfolding of the James Webb Space Telescope is complete

The James Webb Space Telescope has completed its two-week deployment phase and revealed the final mirror plate.

Stargazers and engineering teams at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, celebrated this feat.

But what is the soonest before we can see anything?

It will take some time before we see anything, said Bill Nelson, NASA administrator.

“It’s going to take six months to start receiving those pictures. But when we do that, as I did, Michelle explained, Oh, the horizon isn’t the limit. And we’ll get all kinds of new knowledge about who we are, who we are, where we come from, are there others out there” .

Now that it’s unfolded, it’ll begin aligning its optics, then calibrating its scientific instruments.

Infrared technology will allow him to see the first stars and galaxies that formed 13.5 billion years ago.
