GERMANTOWN, Wis. — By now, we've all seen the powerful images from the James Webb Space Telescope. The photos are the result of years of hard work from multiple companies, including one right here in Southeast Wisconsin.
Before the telescope was launched into space late last year, the design team needed some help.
That's where Roger Lee with Ellsworth Adhesives came into the picture.
"This is super exciting," Lee smiled. "It's cool to be part of."
WATCH: Lee said the company often works with space exploration companies to achieve their design keeping the extremes of space in mind.
"Imagine something going into space, the harsh environments space brings. Our engineered adhesives can withstand those environments," Lee said.
Ellsworth Adhesives is a family-owned company that manufactures and distributes highly-engineered adhesives that are used to bond things.
Due to confidentiality reasons, Lee couldn't tell us specifically what piece of the telescope they made something for but said it's rewarding to see what they worked on to produce the incredible photos.
The images that I've seen coming out of The James Webb is exciting and it's nice to know we're part of exploring deeper into out of space," Lee smiled.
Through these photos the world is getting a look into the past and future, and it couldn't be done without a company right in Southeast Wisconsin.
