The James Webb Space Telescope is the world’s next great space observatory. From its origami-like stowage into the world's largest reliable rocket, over twenty deployments will be done in space to expand Webb into its mansion-sized operational science configuration, where it will then help astronomers advance their exploration of deep space and provide us all more of those awe-inspiring images we've seen from Hubble. Using open-source electronics, modern robotics software, CNC machining, 3D printing, tiny deployment mechanisms and painstaking care we've developed and refined through a series of prototypes our small deployable models of Webb. We're now embarking on making and distributing large quantities of these deployable models for the benefit of students, educators and the public, rather than for profit, so that more people can get better insights into how NASA and ESA engineers make huge Transformer-like machines like Webb actually happen in order to advance space science and understanding of our universe. Come learn about Webb, and see how it will unfold in space, first-hand!
