Large Space Structures – The James Webb Space Telescope




Scientists at the California Institute of Technology and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, led by Professor Sergio Pellegrino, are studying the feasibility of a self-assembling space telescope.

Individual mirror segments, mounted on separate satellites called MirrorSats, would be carried into space aboard multiple rockets. Once in orbit, the segments would maneuver in cooperation with each other to link up and produce a mosaic telescope mirror.

The research and demonstration missions are partly funded by the Keck Institute for Space Studies.
