This summer, 20 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduates funded by the National Science Foundation came to Brookhaven Lab for a new three-week workshop to develop their scientific computing skills for solving real-world problems.

Webb telescope update!

Webb telescope update!

From the moment NASA's James Webb Space Telescope launches, and through the first six hours of flight, five different telecommunications networks located strategically around the world will hand off command and telemetry data to keep Webb’s controllers in touch with their spacecraft. The mission recently completed a successful test of communications handoffs between these networks.

After six hours, Webb will be about halfway to the Moon and six times farther from Earth than the geosynchronous Earth orbit where NASA's Tracking and Data Relay Satellite fleet and many communications satellites dwell. When the telescope reaches its destination, it will be nearly a million miles from Earth and will depend on NASA’s three Deep Space Network centers around the globe.
