Installation of the Near InfraRed Spectrograph (NIRSpec) onto JWST's Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM) in NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

The installation of NIRSpec, which took place on 24 and 25 March, was a tricky process; with three instruments already installed on the ISIM the clearances between the other instruments was very small and a lot of care had to be taken to ensure that there was no unintentional contact between surfaces. Technicians from NASA, ESA and Airbus were on hand to visually monitor the clearances to ensure all went smoothly.
