“We’re extremely elated to be here testing the world’s most magnificent time machine”
The £6.5billion NASA James Webb telescope has been tested and is due to launch in 2019.
It was described as a “time machine” that could uncover the secrets of the universe, including how life began.
The telescope will be used to look back to the first galaxies more than 13.5billion years ago and will observe stars and even planets in our solar system.
This coin was discovered in Egypt – could that be an alien being?
When it launches it will become the most powerful telescope of all time and will be able to peer back 200 million years after the Big Bang.
Mark Voyton, the manager for the Optical Telescope Element and Integrated Science Instrument Module said he was excited about the project’s future.
He added: “We’re extremely elated to be here, especially after the successful completion of our cryovacuum and optical testing of the world’s most magnificent time machine, the Webb telescope.”
Meanwhile, Ufologists believe they have already discovered alien activity on Earth.
It comes as mysterious footage of a UFO flying above Mexico emerged online.
More than 40,000 Americans have taken out insurance against being abducted by aliens.
He said: “You can see that the tubular UFO is flying vertically over the city.
“Aliens are aware that we have made a number of space launches recently and have identified that we have been sending up ‘war material’.”
