"I expect [Webb] to be successful, as it journeys to Lagrange point 2 [after launch] and explores the origins of solar systems, galaxies, and has the chance to change our understanding of our universe." While Webb was inside the chamber, insulated from both outside visible and infrared light, engineers ...
The preferred location for such a sunshade is near the Earth-Sun inner Lagrange point (L1) in an orbit with the same 1-year period as the Earth, and in-line with the sun at a distance ≥ 1,500,000 kilometers from Earth. While researching the idea, I found three well documented write-ups: In 1989, James ...

Sometime in 2019 or 2020 India will send ISRO's solar mission Aditya-L1 to a vantage point in space, known as the L1 Lagrange point, to do imaging and study of the sun.

... for the James Webb Space telescope's cryogenic testing at Johnson, in a statement on NASA's website. "I expect [Webb] to be successful, as it journeys to Lagrange point 2 [after launch] and explores the origins of solar systems, galaxies, and has the chance to change our understanding of our universe.".
Its final destination will be the "L2" Lagrange point, around a million miles from Earth but in an orbit that - along with its five-layered sunshield - will protect JWST from the light and heat of the sun and enable it to pick up weak mid-infrared signals. The L2 position also means that, unlike Hubble, which goes ...
... and provide a better environment for science and exploration to coexist on the surface?" Green asked the audience. His suggestion: to use already-explored models to create a magnetic dipole shield at the Mars L1 Lagrange point, where a device or object can stay in an orbit with a constant pattern.

The James Webb telescope will be situated at the L2 Lagrange point so far away that there will be no chance of contamination that occurs at low-Earth orbit.
Metode yang diajukan oleh ilmuwan NASA adalah membuat perisai magnetis buatan yang ditempatkan di L1 Lagrange point dekat dengan Mars.
The James Webb Space telescope will rest in space at Lagrange point 2, a spot directly behind Earth from the sun's perspective.
The proposed Lagrange point system would not require massive amounts of superconducting cable with gigawatt generators. It would be a much smaller shield between the sun and Mars.
But his Strathclyde Uni team's breakthrough uses Lagrange points - areas in space where satellites or observatories can stay in fixed positions.
The Lucy mission will travel even further out - to Jupiter to examine six Trojan asteroids. Trojans are bodies that are present in Lagrange points. These are places around a planet's orbit where the opposing gravitational attraction from the planet and ...
DSCOVR (whose name is short for Deep Space Climate Observatory) takes its measurements from the sun-Earth Lagrange point 1, a gravitationally stable spot 930,000 miles from our planet.
In answer to this challenge, Dr. Jim Green - the Director of NASA's Planetary science Division - and a panel of researchers presented an ambitious idea.
The mission involves first sending a relay orbiter to a Lagrange point beyond the moon in summer 2018 to facilitate communications with the lander and rover on the lunar far side, which due to tidal locking never faces Earth.
Excitement has been building all afternoon about an announcement by Elon Musk and SpaceX, and the story is finally out: two private citizens have contracted with SpaceX to be the first humans to make a deep-space trip in 45 years.
It now sits at the L1 Lagrange point, about a million miles from Earth. It also monitors how the planet's ozone, cloud cover and seasonal changes happen, making comparisons over time easier.
Eventually, Lunar Station plans to have a fleet of MoonWatchers operating in a variety of locations, including lunar orbit and two gravitationally stable spots in the Earth-moon system known as Lagrange points 1 and 2. And the company's longer-term ...
The JWST will take about a month to reach a position 1.5 million kilometres (930,000 miles) from Earth known as Lagrange point 2, or L2, where the telescope will operate below -390 F. However, if it malfunctions here, there will be no way to go about ...
In some games this season, in fact, all of LaGrange's points have come from those three players. Friday night's game was different.
Lagrange points are those mysterious points in space where the gravity of one body cancels out the gravity of another - such as Earth and the sun.
The giant space telescope will park about 1.5 million kilometers (932,000 miles) away from the Earth at the second Lagrange point, or L2, and stay on the dark side of the Earth, orbiting the sun along with our planet. James Webb will have over five ...
But the James Webb's destination is Lagrange point 2 (L2), a stable point in space about 1.5 million km (932,000 miles) from Earth.

Trojan asteroids are trapped inside stable gravity wells called Lagrange points, which precede or follow a planet as it orbits the sun.
After launch, the spacecraft will then be placed in a stable gravitational area in space known as a Lagrange point. In this case, Athena will use L2, which is on the "dark" side of the Earth (meaning that it is exactly opposite of the sun.
Unlike Hubble, Webb will be positioned far away from Earth at the L2 Lagrange point. That's a stable orbital location that keeps the Earth between the telescope and the sun.
The first Lagrange point, called L1, is inside the planet's orbit toward the sun. L2 is outside the planet's orbit, and L3 is on the opposite side of the planet from the Sun.
Trojan asteroids are trapped in stable gravity wells, called Lagrange points, which precede or follow a planet. OSIRIS-REx is currently traveling through Earth's fourth Lagrange point, which is located 60 degrees ahead in Earth's orbit around the sun ...
