WebbTelescope : Primary Mirror Wings Deployed, All Major Deployments Complete

Today, at 1:17 p.m. EST (1817 UTC), The James Webb Space Telescope completed all of its large-scale deployments with the extension and latching of its starboard primary mirror wing. Now that the telescope is structurally fully deployed – with the secondary mirror tripod and both primary mirror wings in place – the three-month process of aligning all of Webb’s telescope optics into a precise system can now commence.
