  • WFIRST: The Road to L2
    2016.09.20
    Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is a next-generation space telescope. It will observe the infrared universe from a halo orbit located at the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point two, located beyond the orbit of the Moon. This visualization follows along the trajectory to this halo orbit.

    Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is a next-generation space telescope. It will observe the infrared universe from a halo orbit located at the Sun-Earth Lagrange Point two, located beyond the orbit of the Moon. This visualization views the trajectory offset from above the ecliptic plane.
