Webb Space Telescope moved to testing chambers

from SpaceRef

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is both large and heavy, so it requires some big equipment to move it from one place to another during testing. The sunshield on the Webb telescope is 70 feet by 48 feet, or roughly the size of a tennis court. Once it and the attached spacecraft bus are combined with the telescope element, with its mirrors and science instruments, Webb will weigh almost 14,000 pounds, which is about as much as a full-size school bus. more
