Saturn Winch at NASA

NASA’s new James Webb Telescope Testing

Saturn’s Winch is located near the ceiling of the facility to handle some of the testing of the NEW Telescope. The James Webb will be replacing the 25 year-old Hubble Space Telescope in 2021. The clean-room and high temperature application required strict specifications for the winch. It was designed to to pull ….load of the spacecraft.  Though a small piece of a much larger project, Saturn continues to be of use in critical applications.  Safety and service for our country and even outer space endeavors.
