This video shows behind-the-scenes footage as the Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM) of the James Webb Space Telescope is installed in the giant cryo-vacuum chamber at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. This was the third long-duration cryo-vacuum test for ISIM in the Space Environment Simulator (SES) at Goddard.

ISIM houses the four JWST instruments: NIRSpec (Near Infrared Spectrograph), MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument), NIRCam (Near-Infrared Camera), and FGS/NIRISS (Fine Guidance System/Near-InfraRed Imager and Slitless Spectrograph).
