Nigeria insists Boko Haram defeated after 10year insurgency

first_imgLagos: Nigeria’s presidency claimed Boko Haram’s 10-year-old insurgency had been “defeated” but admitted that international jihadists posed a growing threat. “The position of the Nigerian government is that the Boko Haram terrorism has been degraded and defeated. The real Boko Haram we know is defeated,” the presidency said in a statement late Tuesday. It said the country was now facing “a mixture” of Boko Haram remnants, criminal groups and jihadists from the Maghreb and West Africa fuelled by turmoil in Libya and the collapse of the Islamic State caliphate in the Middle East.

President Muhammadu Buhari, a former general who vowed to crush Boko Haram when he became president in 2015 for his first term in office, has previously said the group were “beaten”. The uprising began in northeast Nigeria in July 2009 when fighting between the hardline group and government forces left hundreds of jihadists dead, including leader Muhammad Yusuf.

In 2015, the Nigerian army forced the jihadists out of major towns but they remain at large in remote strongholds. Fighters still launch persistent attacks and a breakaway faction loyal to IS, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), has ratcheted up assaults against the military since last year. Over the weekend an attack by the Boko Haram group headed by long-time leader Abubakar Shekau killed 65 villagers close to the regional capital Maiduguri. The army has often been criticised for failing to safeguard local communities, with vigilante groups stepping into the void left by the authorities. But the presidency said it was looking to bolster its military capacity and expected the long-awaited delivery of Super Tucano turbo-prop warplanes from the United States “beginning next year”.last_img read more

Imams forced to dance in the street in religiously repressed Xianjang

By Kristina FriedRabat – In the Muslim majority district of Xinjiang on Monday, imams were forced by the Chinese state to dance in the street holding banners that read “our income comes from the CKP not from Allah,” according to World Bulletin. The imams were also made to swear an oath that they would not teach religion to children on the grounds that prayer “is unhealthy and harmful to the soul.” Teachers in the district were forced to take a similar oath, also swearing to teach their students to stay away from mosques. In addition to the banners, the imams were also made to chant statements exalting the state such as “peace of the country gives peace to the soul.”This latest indignity comes after over half a decade of oppression by the Chinese state in the Xinjiang region, known by activists as East Turkestan, which has been autonomous since 1955 and is home to Uighur Muslims, a Turkish-speaking minority. Recently, China has increased its religious repression in the region, with human rights groups claiming that China has been using anti-terrorism as an excuse.China has gone so far as to ban religious practices and icons, including clothing, in government buildings and to ban women in hijabs and burqas from using public transportation, as well as make it illegal for students and government officials to observe Ramadan. read more

Ban Kimoon urges restraint by Ethiopia and Eritrea as tensions rise

Of particular concern are “recent shooting incidents, as well as the building up of military forces in the border area,” according to a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.The Secretary-General called on the two countries to exercise “utmost restraint,” maintain their commitment to the Algiers Agreements – the pacts which ended the border war in 2000 – and preserve the integrity of the Temporary Security Zone (TSZ), where the UN has deployed a peacekeeping mission known as UNMEE.He also urged them to facilitate the implementation of the decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) regarding the demarcation of their border. In 2002 the Commission handed down a final and binding decision awarding Badme, the town that triggered fighting between the two countries from 1998 to 2000, to Eritrea. 11 October 2007Voicing his concern at escalating tensions between Ethiopia and Eritrea, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on the two East African neighbours to show maximum restraint and abide by the accords that ended their border war seven years ago. read more

Kinder Morgan faces more hurdles after federal OK of Trans Mountain pipeline

Kinder Morgan faces more hurdles after federal OK of Trans Mountain pipeline Kinder Morgan Canada President Ian Anderson participates in a question and answer session after addressing the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade in Vancouver, B.C., on Thursday November 3, 2016. Anderson is asking opponents of its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to be “lawful and respectful,” a day after the project secured federal approval.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck by Dan Healing, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 30, 2016 12:30 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 30, 2016 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – The president of Kinder Morgan Canada issued a plea to opponents of its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion on Wednesday to be “lawful and respectful” as they protest the project which secured federal approval the day before.But Ian Anderson also conceded that protesters marching or filing legal challenges aren’t the only hurdles facing the $6.8-billion project.“We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and we’re looking forward to getting from ‘yes’ to starting to build,” he said on a media conference call.“I don’t think I’d be sitting here today if I didn’t think we could continue on the path to building and executing on this project.”Kinder Morgan said Wednesday it will obtain remaining government permits, including a provincial environmental assessment, put together a final cost estimate and consult with shippers committed to the project over the next few months before making a final investment decision.Opponents have been quick to point out that Trans Mountain’s federal approval means it has reached the same step at which Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project stalled two years ago.That project was approved by the National Energy Board and the Harper government, but a court reversed the approval earlier this year, ruling that Ottawa had failed to adequately consult aboriginal people. The proposed pipeline from Alberta to the B.C. North Coast was permanently halted by the Trudeau government on Tuesday.Dinara Millington, vice-president of research at the Calgary-based Canadian Energy Research Institute, said the prospect of a similar court ruling against Trans Mountain likely presents the largest risk that the project won’t be allowed to proceed.She pointed out that a duty to consult with First Nations is among the 157 conditions imposed by the NEB in its recommendation for approval of Trans Mountain last May and would likely be used against it in a court challenge.Another vulnerability comes from the construction permits Trans Mountain must obtain from various Lower Mainland municipalities, she said, suggesting opponents will use those opportunities to delay the project.“This is where the most stiff opposition is happening,” Millington said. “I think that’s where they will face a lot of opposition.”She said the business case for the Trans Mountain expansion is strong because the current pipeline, with 300,000 barrels per day of capacity, often can’t accommodate all of the demand for transport.On the call, Anderson said the company will consider forming a joint venture to share the costs and profits of the project, adding that it has a “long list” of potential partners who are interested.In a research note, RBC Capital Markets analyst Elvira Scotto said Trans Mountain’s federal approval means Kinder Morgan can likely charge a “premium” to allow a partner to join the project.The company said it hopes to begin construction next fall and put the pipeline in service by 2019.The expansion would triple capacity to about 890,000 barrels per day of oil on the 1,150-kilometre pipeline route between the Edmonton area in Alberta and Kinder Morgan’s marine terminal in Burnaby, B.C.It would also increase the potential number of tankers leaving Vancouver-area waters from five to 34 per month.B.C. Premier Christy Clark said Wednesday that five conditions necessary for provincial support of energy pipelines are “very close” to being met by the federal government, news that Anderson said he found encouraging.The conditions include advanced marine oil spill response systems, First Nations consultations and financial benefits for the province.Kinder Morgan hasn’t released a list of its committed shippers but the companies who have talked about their support of the project include all of the big Alberta oilsands producers.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter. read more

Mass funeral held for Myanmar plane crash victims

first_imgHeartbroken relatives gathered Friday for the funeral rites of the first victims of a military plane crash off Myanmar’s southern coast, as search teams battled heavy rains and churning waves to find scores more people presumed lost at sea.Most of the 31 dead retrieved from the Andaman Sea so far have been women and children after a fraught search by navy ships, planes and helicopters hampered by sweeping rains.A total of 122 people were on board the Chinese-made Shaanxi Y8 military aircraft when it crashed on Wednesday during a routine flight from the southern city of Myeik to Myanmar’s commercial hub of Yangon.Hundreds gathered in a cemetery outside Dawei town on Friday afternoon to bid goodbye to loved ones whose bodies had been pulled from the water the previous day on San Hlan beach, a two hour drive away.Chanting from Buddhist monks filled a hall used for the ceremonies as 10 flimsy wooden coffins were laid out.One woman fainted and had to be carried out and many others broke down wailing as the service went on.Mourners then moved outside and watched as black smoke from the cremated coffins poured out of nearby towers, drifting across the sky.“My husband identified my nephew’s body. I’m so sorry,” said a tearful Khine Zar Win, who lost her youngest brother, his wife and two-year-old nephew in the plane crash.Another mourner, Aye Aye, said five members of her friend’s family were killed in the crash.“I couldn’t sleep when I heard about them,” she said. “We lived together like a family for 15 years in the military before my husband retired.”“I have no words,” added one woman, whose daughter and grandson were on the plane. “We are so sad.”More than half of the passengers on the aircraft were from military families, including 15 children, according to the army. The rest were soldiers and flight crew.The military said on Friday it had identified 16 of the dead so far.There has been no official explanation for the cause of the crash, one of several deadly incidents involving Myanmar military aircraft in recent years.Monsoon season brings heavy rains and strong winds every year, but there were no reports of major storms along the plane’s flight route when it went missing.Storms hamper search -Fishing boats helped navy vessels and military aircraft as they continued to hunt for the wreckage on Friday, despite tides reaching over 2.5 metres, the military said in a statement.But by the afternoon officials had not announced the retrieval of any more bodies.“We are having difficulty because of the strong winds and tide,” Major Aung Win, police chief of Launglon township, told AFP.The military said the aircraft was flying above 18,000 feet (5,486 metres) when it lost contact with air traffic control at 1:35 pm (07:05 GMT) on Wednesday.The military has described the captain as a “seasoned” pilot with more than 3,000 hours flying experience.Gerry Soejatman, an independent aviation expert based in Jakarta, said initial information indicated something went wrong “not long after or just before reaching cruising altitude”.Myanmar’s former junta bought several Y8s-four-engine turboprop jets used for medium range flights-during their 50 years of isolated rule, when they were squeezed by Western sanctions.The plane’s maker, China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation, has pledged to assist with investigations into the crash.Several pieces of debris that appeared to be from the wreckage, including tyres, life jackets and some luggage, have also been salvaged.last_img read more

UofL Basketball Names Trio of Captains for 201920

first_imgWilliams started the last 20 games of the season while producing four double-doubles.  He was third on the team in rebounding and 19th in the ACC, averaging 6.1 rebounds and 7.7 points for the season.  The 6-11 junior from Fort Wayne, Ind., blocked a shot in 26 of 34 games as a sophomore and ranked 11th in the ACC in blocked shots (41 total, 1.2 average).  He grabbed a career-best 13 boards against both North Carolina and Notre Dame.  He averaged 9.8 points and 8.4 rebounds over the last five games of the season.  LOUISVILLE, Ky. — University of Louisville redshirt senior guard Ryan McMahon, redshirt senior forward Dwayne Sutton and junior forward/center Malik Williams have been selected as team captains for the 2019-20 men’s basketball season by a vote of their teammates. “Dwayne, Malik and Ryan have earned the vote of their teammates to be elected captains,” said UofL Head Coach Chris Mack.  “It’s clear that their efforts and actions in the offseason have gained the respect of their teammates.  Leadership on any team is highly important and it’s especially key with so many new faces on our roster this season.  I think each of them understands what it means to be a captain and are honored that their peers have chosen them.” Story Links The trio of captains helped Louisville achieve a 20-14 record in 2018-19 and participate in the Cardinals’ 39th NCAA Tournament.  Picked in the preseason to finish 11th in the ACC, UofL attained a 10-8 conference record and earned a tie for sixth in the final regular season standings.  The Cardinals return six of their top seven scorers from last year and welcome a top 10 recruiting class.   The Cardinals have been ranked among the nation’s top teams in multiple early rankings by national outlets, including the following:  No. 2 by Jon Rothstein, CBS Sports; No. 3 by Jeff Goodman, Stadium; No. 4 by Gary Parrish, CBSSports.com; No. 4 by Jeremy Woo, Sports Illustrated; No. 5 by Jeff Borzello, ESPN.com; No. 5 by Seth Davis, The Athletic; No. 6 by Rob Dauster, NBCSports.com; No. 6 by Mike Rutherford, SB Nation; No. 6 by Kyle Kensing, Athlon Sports; No. 8 by David Kenyon, Bleacher Report; and No. 11 by Mike DeCourcy, The Sporting News.Louisville has received an NCAA Public Recognition Award six of the last seven years for ranking among the top 10 percent in men’s basketball in the Academic Progress Rate (APR), which measures academic eligibility, retention and graduation for student-athletes. Louisville is one of just nine Division I schools in the nation, including only two from Power Five conferences (Louisville and Stanford), which have earned the APR recognition in at least six of the last seven years. McMahon, who earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing in the spring, hit a three-pointer in 24 of 34 games last season.  Fifty-three of McMahon’s 68 field goals last year came from three-point range. The 6-0 sharpshooter from Sarasota, Fla., has 15 career double-figure scoring efforts, including when he scored a career-high 24 points against Michigan State last season.  He led the Cardinals in free throw percentage last year (.950, 57-of-60) and was third on the team with 60 assists.  UofL is 23-5 when McMahon scores eight or more points over the last three years.    Print Friendly Version Sutton, who graduated in the spring with a bachelor’s degree in sport administration, started all 34 games for the Cardinals last season while averaging 10.0 points (third on the team) and 6.9 rebounds (second on the team, 16th in the ACC).  He was noted as one of the nation’s top ten “Glue Guys” last season by College Insider Jon Rothstein.  The 6-5 wing from Louisville who played his freshman year at UNC Asheville enters his final season with 901 collegiate points (493 at UofL) and 639 rebounds (377 at UofL).  He was 25th in the ACC in minutes played, averaging 31.4 per game.last_img read more

Artificial Blood Transfusions Could Be a Reality By 2017

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. June 25, 2015 2 min read To offset the declining number of blood donors, the National Health Service has heavily invested in the production of lab-grown blood. (The U.K.’s health system found a 40 percent decrease in new blood donors in England and North Wales last year compared to a decade ago.)In a news release published today, the NHS predicts that the first artificial blood transfusions will take place a mere two years from now, in 2017. Made from stem cells taken from adult and umbilical cord blood, the lab-grown alternative will be tested in early phase clinical trials, in which 20 healthy volunteers receive five to 10 milliliters of the stuff. Their results will then be compared to a control group’s that receives normal blood donations.Related: Next Up in Health Tech: DNA HackingThe aim is to “compare manufactured cells with donated blood,” Dr .Nick Watkins, assistant director at the NHS Blood and Transplant unit, said in a statement. “The intention is not to replace blood donation but provide specialist treatment for specific patient groups.”For patients with complex blood types or blood conditions, such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, finding donors for regular transfusions can be difficult.  The NHS, in partnership with a host of brands and retailers, started a campaign to remove the letters A, O and B from the names of British chains such as Waterstones and Odeon Cinemas to raise awareness of the constant need for new donors of all blood types. The hope is that by manufacturing blood in a lab, scientists can solve this supply-demand problem even if the number of new blood donors continues to decline.Related: As Wearables Get Hot, These 6 Industries Are Poised to Capitalize Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

Gas chief in LNG warning

first_imgBy Stefanos EvripidouCYPRUS MUST do everything possible to secure use of Israeli gas at a planned LNG terminal on the island, or else risk jeopardising the whole project, said national gas company head Charles Ellinas on Saturday.The executive director of the Cyprus National Hydrocarbons Company made the comments on the sidelines of a natural gas workshop in Nicosia organised by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Cyprus Institute.Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, Ellinas argued that the estimated 5 trillion cubic feet (tcf) sitting in Noble Energy’s Aphrodite field in its Block 12 concession in Cyprus exclusive economic zone (EEZ) was simply not enough to justify the construction of a costly liquefaction plant at Vassilikos.Ellinas, who reports say is in the process of negotiating the termination of his contract, said that by the time either Noble finds more gas in Block 12, or Total or ENI-KOGAS, who also have offshore concessions, carry out exploratory and then appraisal drilling, it will be too late to access the attractive Asian market.Cyprus hopes to start work on the LNG terminal in 2016 and start exporting its own natural gas in 2020.To proceed with the terminal, argued Ellinas, Cyprus would need Israel’s proven reserves in its Leviathan gas field. But Israel is currently mulling a number of options and is not expected to decide on one until the end of next year.“We must do everything we can to convince Israel, which has many options, to come to Cyprus. It can send natural gas to Turkey, to Egypt, here, or export it using offshore units,” he said, noting that the offshore unit option is gaining ground as time passes.“We need to be able to convince them to come here. If they don’t come here, then we will have difficulty.”Ellinas explained that the longer Cyprus waits, the more technologies change, as do markets, prices and risks. At present the Far Eastern markets are the most attractive in terms of price. But Australia, Mozambique, America, Canada and Russia are all planning to export gas to the Far East from 2018-2020.If Cyprus delays, it could lose these markets or have to sell its gas at cheaper prices, reducing profit.It will be left with the European market, whose prices are much lower.“To make good profits and benefit Cyprus, we need to go to the Far East and if there are delays, there are also risks the prices of this market will be lost,” he said. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTruthfinderEnter Any Name, Wait These Seconds, See Instant ResultsTruthfinderUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Canada eager for hydrocarbons role

first_imgCANADA is keen to participate in the development of Cyprus’ offshore hydrocarbons, energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said on Monday.His comments came shortly after meeting Canadian Veterans Minister Julian Fantino, on an official visit to the island with ten veterans of the Canadian UNFICYP contingent for a week of events to mark Canada’s participation in the force.As well as meeting President Nicos Anastasiades and Defence Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos, Fantino also met Lakkotrypis.The two ministers agreed to organise trade missions between the two countries, part of a drive to enhance bilateral relations.Speaking on state broadcaster CyBC, Lakkotrypis confirmed that Fantino conveyed to him the interest displayed by Canadian outfit Sea NG in the interim gas tender launched by Cyprus.Sea NG specialises in CNG transportation. The company has developed its proprietary Coselle System. In 2006 Sea NG received approval for construction of a CNG ship from the American Bureau of Shipping. To date no such vessels have been built.After his meeting with Anastasiades, Fantino said they had talked about “great opportunities” for Cyprus to grow and “the kinds of things that can happen between Canada and Cyprus to create win-win situations”.“It’s 50 years of Canadian involvement in Cyprus. We are here visiting with ten of our veterans who actually served here over the fifty years of work that Canada has done here,” said Fantino.Over 25,000 Canadian troops served in UNFICYP since 1964 and 28 lost their lives on the island in that time. Canadian troops were instrumental in defending NicosiaAirport in 1974 and saving it from falling into the hands of Turkish troops.As part of the events this week, a photo exhibition on the Canadian peacekeeping mission was opened at Famagusta Gate last night while a documentary ‘Our Man in Tehran’ will be shown tonight at the same venue at 8.30pm. It tells the true story of the Canadian Ambassador to Tehran, Ken Taylor, who helped six American diplomats escape during the hostage crisis at the US embassy in Iran in 1980.Tomorrow there will be a lecture on the Canadian mission in Cyprus at the EuropeanUniversity by historian Dr Greg Donaghy at 6pm.In 1993 Canada withdrew most of his troops from Cyprus but still retains a small presence at UNFICYP.The delegation’s visit coincides with the return of one of the last groups of the Canadian armed forces mission to Afghanistan.“The members of the Canadian Armed Forces in Cyprus left an indelible mark of our troops but also on the history of both Canada and Cyprus,” said FantinoHe said Canada will do everything it could to support the current talks process, which he had discussed with Anastasiades.“We want to encourage him – and I did actually on behalf of Canada – to continue along that path” Fantino said. “This is the only way to go. I am very pleased to see how committed he [the President] is to this lasting solution that we are all very hopeful it will eventually happen,” he added.  Canada eager for hydro-carbons roleCANADA is keen to participate in the development of Cyprus’ offshore hydrocarbons, energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said on Monday.His comments came shortly after meeting Canadian Veterans Minister Julian Fantino, on an official visit to the island with ten veterans of the Canadian UNFICYP contingent for a week of events to mark Canada’s participation in the force.As well as meeting President Nicos Anastasiades and Defence Minister Tasos Mitsopoulos, Fantino also met Lakkotrypis.The two ministers agreed to organise trade missions between the two countries, part of a drive to enhance bilateral relations.Speaking on state broadcaster CyBC, Lakkotrypis confirmed that Fantino conveyed to him the interest displayed by Canadian outfit Sea NG in the interim gas tender launched by Cyprus.Sea NG specialises in CNG transportation.

And, But the new AAA study reviewing more than 6, he says," said a statement released by Minneapolis Mayor R.C. and former JWST telescope scientist Like that of Hubble however Webb’s construction has been plagued by redesigns schedule slips and cost overruns that have strained relationships with contractors partners in Canada and Europe and—most crucially—supporters in the US Congress Other missions had to be slowed or put on ice as Webb consumed available resources A crisis in 2010 and 2011 almost saw it canceled although lately the project has largely kept within its schedule and budget now about $8 billion One of Webb’s gold-coated beryllium mirror segments is inspected before assembly at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center NASA/Chris Gunn: K W Don University of Arizona An

several innovative components designed to unfold in space en route to Webb’s final orbit 15 million kilometers from Earth Photo illustration: James Vaughan But plenty could go wrong between now and the moment in late 2018 when the telescope begins sending back data from its vantage point 15 million kilometers from Earth It faces the stresses of launch the intricate unfurling of its mirror and sunshield after it emerges from its chrysalis-like launch fairing and the possibility of failure in its many cutting-edge technologies Unlike Hubble saved by a space shuttle mission that repaired its faulty optics it is too far from Earth to fix And not just the future of space-based astronomy but also NASA’s ability to build complex science missions depends on its success That’s why those instruments sat in Goddard’s pressure cooker for what is known as cryo-vacuum test 3 (CV3) And it is why Webb’s other components—including the mirror and telescope structure the “bus” that will supply power and control the telescope and the tennis court–sized multilayer parasol that will help keep it cool—must undergo a gauntlet of testing alone and in combinations until the whole spacecraft is ready For those on the inside the strain will only increase as assembly continues the tests get bigger and more comprehensive and the spacecraft is launched into space Only when Webb opens its eye and successfully focuses on its first star will the strain be released In the mid-1990s after Hubble had had its optics corrected and was busy revolutionizing astronomy researchers began planning its successor The catch phrase in NASA at the time championed by agency chief Daniel Goldin was “faster better cheaper” Goldin challenged NASA engineers and the astronomical community to come up with a follow-on that was cheaper than Hubble but bigger with a mirror 8 meters across He received a standing ovation when he described the plans to the American Astronomical Society in 1996 Whereas Hubble covered the whole range of visible light plus a smidgen of ultraviolet and infrared the Next Generation Space Telescope (as it was then known) would be a dedicated infrared observatory If you put something this powerful into space who knows what we can find It’s going to be revolutionary because it’s so powerful Matt Mountain director of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy and former JWST telescope scientist For astronomers the infrared spectrum was a beckoning frontier Visible light from the most distant objects in the universe the very first stars and galaxies that formed after the big bang gets stretched so much by the expansion of the universe that it ends up in the infrared range by the time it reaches us Many chemical signatures in exoplanet atmospheres also show themselves in the infrared region Yet Earth’s atmosphere blocks most infrared Webb will give us “the first high-definition view of the midinfrared universe” says Matt Greenhouse JWST project scientist for the instrument payload at Goddard To capture that light however NASA engineers had to overcome huge challenges The first was heat: To keep the infrared glow of the telescope itself from swamping faint astronomical signals Webb would need to operate at about –233°C 40° above absolute zero (40 K) That would require entirely new instrument designs Size and weight constraints posed additional hurdles: An 8-meter mirror would never fit inside a rocket fairing so it would have to fold up for launch The sunshield too would have to be collapsible and made of a superthin lightweight membrane And the telescope structure would have to be absolutely rigid but lightweight enough to limit the weight of the whole orbiting observatory to no more than 6 tonnes just a few percent of the weight of a similar-size ground-based telescope “We knew we would have to invent 10 new technologies” to make the telescope work says NASA’s JWST Program Director Eric Smith in Washington DC Open the full graphic to see how the telescope was put together and how it will unfold in space Take the mirror Hubble’s was made from a single slab of glass but Webb’s folding mirror would need to be segmented made up of separate hexagonal pieces—a design used in many top ground-based instruments including the Keck telescopes in Hawaii The segments would have to be minutely controlled to meld them into a single optical surface with their reflected light completely in step—a process known as phasing In Webb each hexagonal segment will sit on six actuators that control its orientation plus one in the center to adjust its curvature Open to see how Webb deploys in space Choosing the mirror material itself was a challenge because it would have to stand up to a grueling ordeal Because any material will change shape as it cools each segment would have to be ground to a shape that is optically wrong at room temperature but warps into one that is correct—to within nanometers—at 40 K To do that the mirrormakers planned to combine sophisticated computer modeling with a laborious iterative process of grinding cooling measuring warming regrinding cooling again and so on After testing both glass and the metal beryllium Webb planners chose beryllium because it is strong and light and it behaves more predictably during repeated cooling and warming cycles The final design for Webb fell short of NASA’s original ambitions Beginning in 2001 concerns about the swelling cost of the telescope forced NASA to shrink the mirror from 8 meters to 65 meters reducing the number of mirror segments from 36 to 18 and its light-collecting area from 50 square meters to 25 But review panels decided that Webb could still achieve its scientific goals To cut costs further NASA decided to use less precise mirrors that could be manufactured with many fewer cooling-warming-grinding steps The change would make Webb less sharp at near-infrared wavelengths between 1 and 2 micrometers—no great loss as ground-based telescopes already cover that part of the spectrum By 2006 all of Webb’s key technologies had been tested and proven viable The final design was drawn up and construction of components got underway Meanwhile NASA engineers began dreaming up the byzantine series of tests each separate component would have to pass—and the additional tests to be done as components were combined to form larger elements of the spacecraft “As soon as we put two or three parts together we test them” says Scott Willoughby who is in charge of the Webb effort at Northrop Grumman in Redondo Beach California To put Webb’s enormous mirror through its paces engineers at the Johnson Space Center in Houston Texas completely refitted Chamber A a huge cryo-vacuum chamber built to test the crew-carrying spacecraft of the Apollo program For the instruments they devised the peculiar tortures at Goddard The flight models of the instruments began arriving in 2012: four infrared imagers and spectrographs built by collaborators including the European Space Agency a NASA/European consortium the University of Arizona and the Canadian Space Agency Once the instruments were secured on their rigid framework they were vigorously shaken to simulate the stresses of launch as well as blasted with 150 decibels by loudspeaker horns as tall as a person Next came the first cryo-vacuum test to simulate space conditions The telescope’s main mirror with all 18 segments installed but protective covers still in place NASA/Chris Gunn Problems emerged almost immediately The heating and cooling caused the delicate multilayer semiconductor sandwiches that make up the infrared detectors to swell and crack Another critical technology the microshutter array in the near-infrared spectrograph also succumbed This is a device the size of four postage stamps with a grid of 250000 tiny flaps that can be opened selectively so that the instrument can take separate spectra from say 100 galaxies in a single field of view—the first such multiobject spectrograph to fly in space But the deafening noise of the acoustic chamber caused many of the flaps to jam Instrument teams and manufacturers scrambled to identify the problems and produce new parts Meanwhile testing went on All the replacements came together in time for the recent CV3 test and as the test ended in late January the signs were encouraging that the fixes had worked “We’re quite pleased with the performance” says astronomer Marcia Rieke of the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory in Tucson principal investigator for the near-infrared camera “We’re very close to ready for launch” While the instruments underwent their ordeal white-clad engineers in a nearby clean room were painstakingly fitting the mirror segments onto their support known as the backplane Hollowed out on the back to reduce weight each 13-meter-wide segment can be carried by a single person and each has a particular destination on the backplane depending on its precise optical qualities Now that the instruments have been tested and the mirror assembled these two elements will be mated in March Then the combined telescope and instrument package collectively known as OTIS will endure the shaker tables and acoustic chamber before being inserted into a specially built shipping container In the dead of night a truck will carry the container at just 8 kilometers per hour from Goddard to Joint Base Andrews where it will be placed into a huge C-5 Galaxy transport plane with just centimeters of clearance for its flight to Houston Webb’s mirror backplane is made from a graphite composite that is lightweight and rigid retaining its shape down to cryogenic temperatures NASA/Chris Gunn The few months OTIS spends in Chamber A early next year will be the most critical it will face Light sources on the ceiling will create an artificial universe allowing NASA engineers to run light all the way through the system from main mirror to detectors for the first and only time in spacelike conditions They will practice phasing up the mirror and will check out all observing modes of the four instruments “Hubble didn’t do an end-to-end optical test We’re not skipping that on this program” Greenhouse says Then it’s back into the shipping container and another C-5 flight to Redondo Beach where Northrop Grumman has been building the bus and sunshield There the full observatory will take shape as the telescope and instruments are mated to these last two elements Now too large to fit inside a plane Webb will make its final prelaunch journey by ship down the California coast and through the Panama Canal to French Guiana—home of Europe’s spaceport and a waiting Ariane 5 launcher part of Europe’s contribution to the project In October 2018 the Ariane will fling Webb toward L2 a gravitational balance point 15 million kilometers from Earth directly away from the sun The journey will take 29 days Webb will begin unfolding and deploying components almost as soon as it hits space Deployment will be “3 weeks of terror” Mountain says “No one has done this before ever” First to deploy will be solar arrays and antennas to provide power and communications with Earth; then the sunshield will unfurl to begin cooling the telescope and instruments; finally the secondary mirror will swing into position and the main mirror wings will snap into place Once the mechanical gymnastics routine is finished there will come the heart-stopping moment when the mirror first looks at the sky Then the mirror has to be phased up and the instruments cooled and all their modes tested Commissioning is expected to take a full 6 months after launch “A whole chain of things have to be done to get that really good-looking star” says Lee Feinberg JWST telescope manager at Goddard “But then we can really rest” Until then the pressure will be unrelenting But the builders of Webb say they do find time to reflect on what they are doing Pierre Ferruit JWST project scientist at the European Space Agency in Noordwijk the Netherlands recalls watching from the control room at Goddard during CV3 as technicians carried mirror segments into the clean room and fitted them to the backplane “Even for someone working on the mission it’s quite incredible” he says Rieke had the same sensation: “It’s
