NASA recently announced that Chamber A, its facility famous for testing Apollo moon mission hardware, is now fully ready to accommodate the test requirements for the James Webb Space Telescope.  Dynavac is proud to have worked with NASA and its primary contractor Jacobs Engineering to help develop, build and install the cold gaseous helium-cooled ‘shroud’ that enables the chamber to reach colder temperatures than it had ever reached before. Read more about Dynavac’s role in the James Webb Shroud Upgrade Project
