Take a Selfie

Take a selfie with the replica of the Beryllium mirror used in the James Webb Space Telescope. With these mirrors, the JWST can see almost all the way back to the beginning of the universe — more than 13 billion years ago. The 18 mirror segments form a primary mirror that is over 21’ in diameter. Engineered to operate in the extreme temperatures of deep space, these mirror segments can withstand -324°F while holding a precise shape. Only in booth #4805!
