Engineers worked meticulously to implant the James Webb Space Telescope’s Mid-Infrared Instrument into the ISIM, or Integrated Science Instrument Module, in the cleanroom at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. As the successor to NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the Webb telescope will be the most effective space telescope ever built. It will observe the most distant objects in the universe, offer images of the first galaxies formed and see unexplored planets around distant stars.
