Wednesday, September 29, 2010 NASA team obtains the 'unobtainium' for next space observatory

Yesterday I came across a very interesting article on regarding the James Webb Space Telescope, and I thought I would share it with the readers of this blog.

This article "NASA team obtains the 'unobtainium' for next space observatory" is about the development of a new composite material and the testing involved to prove that the material could withstand the super-cold temperatures it would encounter when the observatory reached its orbit 1.5-million kilometers (930,000 miles) from Earth.

It's a very good read, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did ~ Jim Cox
