Time lapse sequence of engineers as they work to meticulously implant the James Webb Space Telescope's Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) into the ISIM, or Integrated Science Instrument Module, in the cleanroom at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The actual installation took about four hours. The MIRI had to be positioned to a tolerance of 25 microns, or one one-thousandth of an inch, which is less than the width of a human hair.
