The James Webb Space Telescope has fired its thrusters and reached its orbital destination around a million miles (1.5 million kilometers) away from our planet, NASA said Monday, a key milestone on its mission to study cosmic history.

At around 2:00 pm Eastern Time (1900 GMT), the observatory fired its thrusters for five minutes in order to reach the so-called second Lagrange point, or L2, where it will have access to nearly half the sky at any given moment.

"Webb, welcome home!" said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson in a statement.

James Webb Space Telescope reaches its final destination

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope slipped into orbit around a point in space nearly a million miles from Earth on Monday.

It's on a mission to capture light from the first stars and galaxies to form in the aftermath of the Big Bang.
