James Webb Space Telescope Environmental Testing Highlights

At NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, engineers tested the James Webb Space Telescope in the vibration and acoustics test facilities to ensure it is prepared for its rigorous ride into space. Rocket launches create high levels of vibration and noise that rattle spacecraft and telescopes. Ground testing is done to simulate the launch induced vibration and noise to ensure a solid design and assembly of the telescope before launch.
