Appli-Tec Part of NASA Goddard Webb Space Telescope Project

by on October 14, 2020

One of the most complex spacecraft ever made, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will allow scientists to break new ground — both in terms of discovering and observing new parts of space that have never been seen before.

Very cool stuff!

Appli-Tec is proud to be part of this historic effort by providing adhesive materials for the project.

A true international collaboration, thousands of scientists, engineers, and technicians from 14 countries, 29 U.S. states, and Washington, D.C. contributed to build, test, and integrate Webb. In total, 258 distinct companies, agencies, and universities participated – 142 from the United States, 104 from 12 European nations, and 12 from Canada.

Here in the United States, over 100 different companies and multiple NASA facilities contributed to the Webb’s development. Each company or organization helped to build and provide parts and materials for the telescope, or assemble them, or built testing and cleanroom facilities specifically for the spacecraft.
