For the James Webb Space Telescope to fit into a rocket, it must be folded up. After launch, Webb will deploy during its roughly 30-day, million-mile journey out to the second Lagrange point (L2). This 48-frame flipbook highlights how Webb deploys or unfolds like a transformer once in space. It can be made at home using paper and a binder clip. As you quickly flip through the frames, you can see an animation of how Webb will deploy in space!
