LEGO JWST IN 360 DEGREE STOP MOTION
LEGO JWST's Mirrors Move
After launching and deploying, NASA Webb's hexagonal primary mirrors (and its secondary mirror) have to be individually adjusted so that they line up to within a fraction of a micron and work like one big mirror. This LEGO Idea model faithfully reproduces that motion. Each hexagonal segment can be independently moved. Even the secondary mirror wiggles!
