Abstract
The Space Optics Manufacturing Technology Center of Marshall Space Flight Center is involved in the development of lightweight optics for space-based systems. The NGST and other future NASA programs require large aperture space- based instruments. This paper reviews the technologies under development for NGST including discussions of the environmental testing of candidate segment for the NGST primary mirror.
