Beautiful James Webb deployment animation

I do so love spacecraft animations.  😉  This is the best one I’ve seen yet of the James Webb Space Telescope’s complicated deployment process, with a helpful clock showing mission elapsed time to drive home just how long it takes to complete the process.  By the time it reaches its destination, the Sun-Earth L2 halo orbit, it’s ready to go.
