Test Mirror for James Webb Space Telescope
Filed under explaining technology, optical telescopes, James Webb Space Telescope
A technology demonstrator mirror for the James Webb Space Telescope is shown in a test setup with balance beams and counterweights to counteract the effects of gravity. The mirror is hard-mounted to the test fixture, but the counterweights provide a balancing force that minimizes gravity sag.
