The building of the James Webb Space Telescope

While we’ve marveled at the breathtaking images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope—showcasing galaxies, stars, and nebulas—what often goes unseen are the images chronicling the telescope’s own journey. Rare glimpses into the years of construction, snapshots of the dedicated individuals contributing over 100 million person-hours, and visuals capturing the groundbreaking engineering feats behind what some have dubbed “the telescope that ate astronomy.”

Thanks to the lens of NASA photographer Chris Gunn and the narrative prowess of science writer Christopher Wanjek, a new book titled “Inside the Star Factory: The Creation of the James Webb Space Telescope, NASA’s Largest and Most Powerful Space Observatory” offers an intimate look into the intricate workings and monumental efforts involved in bringing the James Webb Telescope to life.
