Webb Telescope Acoustic Testing Social Media Video

Engineers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center moved the James Webb Space Telescope from the Space Systems Development and Integration (SSDIF) Facility cleanroom to the acoustic testing chamber. From here, the Webb telescope was put through sound pressure tests that simulate the environment it will experience when it is launched on the Ariane V Rocket. Conducting these tests on the ground is critical to demonstrate the hardware is safe to launch. Once these tests were done, the telescope was moved back into the cleanroom.
