Lagrange Point 2

This week, nearly 30 days after its launch, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) reached its final destination -- a small, gravitational well in space about a million miles from Earth, where it will live for decades or perhaps even all eternity.

"Webb, welcome home!" NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement Monday. "We're one step closer to uncovering the mysteries of the universe.  And I can't wait to see Webb's first new views of the universe this summer!"
