The James Webb Telescope is ready to take off!
The largest space telescope in history will take off from Kourou base in French Guiana, on December 22, 2021. An exciting mission, in which our company has participated!
Indeed, the hexapods supplied by Symetrie have allowed the CEA Astrophysics Department, responsible for the design, assembly, and testing of MIRIM (Mid InfraRed IMager), to qualify the imager, the one that will capture the images to be used on Earth.
As a reminder, this giant telescope will have the mission to observe the first galaxies, extrasolar planets, and many other celestial objects.
