Did no one else expect to see a little Kerbal in the bottom right-hand corner at the beginning?

I'm sorry Hubble, but you will have to be my second favorite machine on this planet. 🙂

Marzina Vhora says:

Great video but background music is rather annoying??

Leland Yu says:

Are those zigzag yellow lines at the end of the video the flight path for the telescope once it's in operation? Why doesn't it just fly around in one orbit, but moving around in a spring like spiral pattern? What's keeping it in such an orbit?

Brett Ryan says:

There are so many things that could go wrong.  I hope it works.

Jason Tiller says:

Amazing.  I was practically in tears watching the highly-choreographed dance the JWST will perform.  Can't wait to see it in action!
