Two new crews blasted off to space and a record breaking astronaut returned from a stay on space station. The space station team in Houston supported a rigorous schedule of launches of cargo that included supplies and science materials for the crew living and working in the orbiting laboratory, launched there by our commercial partners. Mission Control remained in operation throughout this period, as well as all backup systems required to maintain the James Webb Space Telescope, which is at Johnson for testing, were checked prior to the arrival of the storm, and were ready for use if necessary. While astronauts are in space, Mission Control operates around the clock making sure the crew is safe and the International Space Station is functioning properly. To keep the telescope cold while in space, Webb has a sunshield the size of a tennis court, which blocks sunlight as well as reflected light from the Earth and Moon.
