The primary structure that will serve as the "bones" of NASA's Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope has moved into the big cleanroom at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The Spacecraft bus, Roman's primary support element, will now be built upon this skeletal framework. Roman will help unravel the secrets of dark energy and dark matter, search for exoplanets and explore many topics in infrared astrophysics.
