The hard bit is done!

The IKEA bit of the mission is complete. Now all that’s left is one orbital insertion burn, a 6 month period of commissioning and testing, and a lifetime of avoiding micrometeorites.

I hope they get the time to look at the deep field patch of sky that Hubble so memorably photographed.

Today's the day...

At the time of writing, the James Webb telescope is 1200 miles away from its new home. It's 99.9% of the way there. All that's left is an insertion burn at around 7pm GMT, and a bit of reverse parking into its new orbit where it can start work.
