A time lapse of the Webb Telescope's Mid InfraRed Instrument (MIRI) being installed into the Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM) by engineers at NASA Goddard Spacea Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. (no audio)
Time lapse sequence of engineers as they work to 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 powerful space telescope ever built. It will observe the most distant objects in the universe, provide images of the first galaxies formed and see unexplored planets around distant stars.
