About This Image
EADS Astrium engineers are seen in this image routing a cable for an acoustic test for the Webb’s Near Infrared Spectrometer (NIRSpec) instrument at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's cleanroom in Greenbelt, Md. This successful test showed how NIRSpec's Micro Shutter Array respond to vibration levels that the telescope will experience during launch.
