The Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit Satellite (GTOSat) is a GSFC 6U CubeSat. The JWST Test Bed Telescope (TBT) is a 1:6 scale model of JWST’s telescope with the full sensing capabilities and control authority, located at Ball Aerospace. Wanyi Ng is a propulsion engineer in Code 597 at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). She is pictured in front of the Europa Clipper propulsion subsystem. The photo was taken in the building 11 clean room at the end of her team’s integration and test campaign at GSFC right before the subsystem’s delivery to the Applied Physics Laboratory for further integration.
