Power on! Webb Telescope's instruments are on, and UArizona's NIRCam will soon see starlight
Since the arrival of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope at its orbital destination Jan. 24, the mission operations team has successfully powered on all of the telescope's science instruments, including its primary camera, UArizona's Near Infrared Camera. NIRCam will be used to align the telescope's 18 mirror segments so they work together as one.
