Time-Lapses of engineers transporting the James Webb Space Telescope from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston Texas to Northrop Grumman's cleanroom in Redondo Beach California. Engineers re-installed OTIS into the Space Telescope Transport Air Rail and Sea (STTARS) container at NASA's Johnson Space Center. From there, STTARS was moved to NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, and then to Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base in Houston Texas. Once at the airfield, engineers loaded STTARS onto a C5 Super Galaxy Transport Aircraft, and had STTARS flown out to Los Angeles International (LAX) Airport. Engineers unloaded STTARS from the C5 Aircraft and transported STTARS to Northrop Grumman M8 Cleanroom facility.
