Here’s how to follow the progress of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope

NASA’s new $10 billion observatory is completing a nerve-wracking sequence of steps to reach its final configuration and location.

The James Webb Space Telescope‘s “29 days on the edge,” as NASA has dubbed the lengthy and complex deployment process, began when the spacecraft launched on Saturday (Dec. 25). Since then, the observatory has reached key milestones like unfurling its solar array and adjusting its trajectory. Still to come are steps like opening its sunshield and arranging its mirrors.
