MELBOURNE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#L3Harris--In honor of Labor Day, workers at an L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) facility in NY observe the reflection of a U.S. flag in the newly completed primary mirror for NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope. The nearly 8-foot ultra-high-performance mirror will enable the telescope to gaze into space from a vantage point of 930,000 miles from Earth, helping scientists discover previously unseen parts of the universe, such as exoplanets and dark energy. The mirror sports a protective silver coating that is about 200 times thinner than a human hair, is so finely polished that the average bump on its surface is only 1.2 nanometers tall and is made of specialty ultralow-expansion glass to withstand the harsh temperature extremes of space. Roman is scheduled for launch in the mid-2020s. Learn more: https://go.nasa.gov/32ZWEDx
