Marshall Cameras Selected to Capture James Webb Space Telescope Launch

News Image
It's been more than 30 years since the Hubble Space Telescope was launched into space to study the origins of the universe.

When it was announced that the James Webb Space Telescope was taking its place, history was about to be made again. Launched into space on December 25, 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope was sent into orbit by the European Space Agency in collaboration with NASA and the Canadian Space Agency. A replacement for the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope is the most powerful space telescope ever built, designed to greatly enhance our ability to observe galaxies, planets, stars and even nebulae to help unravel the secrets of the Universe.

Built by NASA, the James Webb Space Telescope was launched on an Ariane 5 rocket, a contribution by the European Space Agency, which oversaw the rocket and launch site. Réaltra Space Systems, based in Dublin, Ireland, designed and developed the video camera telemetry system for the European Space Agency and selected two Marshall Electronics miniature HD cameras to be installed in the launch bay that beamed back the iconic images to a worldwide audience, eager to observe the telescope as it was released into orbit. The cameras were supplied and supported by Marcam Europe, Marshall Electronics' European distributor.

"Marshall has a history of camera and lens integration onboard rockets, satellites, and space vehicles, so when it came time to select the right equipment to capture the launch, Réaltra selected the perfect partner," said Tod Musgrave, director of cameras, Marshall Electronics. "We are honored to be selected for such an historic event and proud that our cameras are onboard to share the launch with observers all over the world."
