Spaceflight Now | Breaking News | Experts say fall of European satellite poses little risk

We're throwing back to the early 60s when had TWO giant vacuum chambers. We tested the James Webb Space Telescope's flight instruments in the SES (Space Environment Simulator), which is the one at right.  More information: When this picture was taken in the 1960s, there were actually two large test chambers. The Dynamic Test Chamber (left) could create a "near-vacuum" with mechanical pumps. The more robust SES (right) augmented its mechanical pumps with diffusion and cryogenic setup, as…
