Webb Telescope Narrated Deployment Sequence (4 min.)

The Webb Telesope is the largest space telescope ever built. It's too large to fit inside any rocket faring. So, it needs to be folded, like orgami, to fit inside the Ariane V rocket faring. Once in space, Webb begins a well choreographed sequence of deployments to unfold to its full operational state. The stages of Webb's deployment process are narrated in this video.
