Images this month from NASA's James Webb telescope captivated people across the globe. For robotic enthusiasts, the success of the Webb telescope means we could be entering a new era of flat, foldable robotic structures that self-assemble. Read more about this amazing technology in Forbes.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was hugely expensive, a massively ambitious engineering project and, as proven by this week’s “first light” images, a complete success.
It’s now a blueprint for all future space telescopes, all of which will be even bigger and better. We could even be entering a new era of robotic structures that self-assemble in space.
