Sunshield for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope Ready for Manufacturing

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. - NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is dominated visually by the tennis-court sized sunshield, which separates the observatory into a warm sun-facing side and a cold anti-sun side. Each of the five sunshield layers helps to protect the telescope optics - or mirrors - from the sun's heat. Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) and teammate NeXolve Corporation, a subsidiary...
