In Science and Space: Damage to the James Webb Space Telescope has halted scientific activity in space, including critical instruments.
A technical error at the world’s most powerful observatory puts science with the MIR instrument on hold.
At 150,000 kilometers from Earth, web telescopes are still exposed to harsh environments. The spacecraft was observed using the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI).

Not JWST’s First Mistake

The mechanism that caused the problem of allowing a scientist to choose between short, medium, and long wavelengths when making observations in MRS mode is now to resume his MRS observation record as soon as possible. I’m trying to analyze the behavior of the device development. The European Space Agency said in a statement: “The observatory is in good condition, and MIRI’s three other observation modes, imaging, low-resolution spectroscopy and coronagraph, are in good working order and remain available for scientific observations.”

This is not the first time telescopes have been reported to malfunction or be damaged. The observatory, which cost about $10 million, survived a micrometeorite impact during the final stages of commissioning before scientific operations began. NASA reported that from May 23-25, JWT impacted one of the primary mirror segments.
