Billions of dollars worth of space telescopes can fail in 300 ways
PASADINA, California: NASA’s state-of-the-art space telescope James Webb telescope, built at a cost of ارب 10 billion, will embark on its mission next month. The system can crash in seconds.
The James Webb Space Telescope was designed to replace the famous Hubble Telescope, which will be launched into space on December 18, 2021 from the European Space Agency’s launch center in French Guiana with the Aryan Five rocket. It is by far the most powerful telescope in history. Although it was supposed to be sent into space in 2007, now, 14 years later, the project is nearing completion.
Scientists have noted all the aspects of this most expensive telescope that could fail in any way. There are about 300 of them. The James Webb telescope will be detached 28 minutes after the rocket’s launch, which has been described as the ‘most difficult stage’. This will be followed by the second most complex process in which the telescopic system itself will open its solar shield. There are hundreds of reasons why this whole process could fail.
According to another engineer working on the NASA James Webb telescope, there are 144 mechanisms that will work together to make this difficult phase a success. Experts have described the whole process of opening a JamesWeb as a paper game (origami) in which the slightest carelessness can destroy it. That’s why not only has the whole system been simplified and simplified to reduce the risk of failure.
According to NASA, the project has hundreds of sensitive complexities that hardly anyone has seen before. That is why the whole mission and command system has been declared critical. On the other hand, Plan B and alternative plans for the entire mission have also been made. Even one aspect of the defect has been observed with great complexity.
It has many of the most sensitive mirrors that will illuminate the universe in visible light and ultraviolet light. However, its orbit can range from 375,000 to 1.5 million kilometers.
