James Webb Space Telescope Mirror Production[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 10 Jan 2011 at 10:38:34 (UTC)

Original - Six of the James Webb Space Telescope beryllium mirror segments undergoing a series of cryogenic tests at the X-ray & Cryogenic Facility at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Reason
Very high technical standard image, using specialized filters on the flash to make the industrial sterilized environment of the clean room seem more dynamic and interesting than it would of if it was shot with natural light. This image is taking during the production of the mirrors for the James Webb Space Telescope before the final gold coating and just before the cryogenic testing. This is the second attempt at nomination, the first attempt failed to get the required number of votes.

  • Support as nominator --— raekyt 10:38, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. I always liked high-res astronomical images. Twilightchill t 15:12, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. I like high-res astronomical images too. As well as high-res images of any remarkable feat of engineering. Purpy Pupple (talk) 03:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. Soewinhan (talk) 08:29, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support It is an interesting angle of an interesting subject, with unusual visual elements (big mirror), and has unusual lighting. Eye-catching and encyclopedic. And it isn’t bugs, birds, Chicago, and flowers, which helps to make for more eclectic FPs on the Main Page. Greg L (talk) 02:27, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Why not? Aaadddaaammm (talk) 17:51, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

The mirror is so good that the reflection counts too! Purpy Pupple (talk) 22:58, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. Definitely, as per Greg L. Fallschirmjäger  13:56, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Weak Support per last time. JJ Harrison (talk) 01:10, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
    • In my opinion, the inaccurate colours don't really matter because the mirror itself doesn't really have a colour anyway. Purpy Pupple (talk) 04:17, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
