NASA's James Webb telescope is about to arrive at an exceptional point in space

The telescope will arrive at Lagrange point 2 on Monday, where it will drift 930,000 miles away in Earth's shadow.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is approaching its new home. On January 24, it will arrive at a point in space that scientists call Lagrange point 2, or L2.Stefanie MilamIn 1765, the mathematician Leonhard Euler crunched gravitational equations to find the first three points. Those three—L1, L2, and L3—form a straight line. Take Earth and the sun. L1 lies between the Earth and the Sun: to be more precise, about 930,000 miles (1.5 million kilometers) from Earth. L2 is tucked away on Earth’s far side: it’s also about 930,000 miles from us, facing the outer reaches of the solar system.
