Go Webb!

The JWST deploys its solar array as viewed from the launch vehicle.

Following the successful insertion of the James Webb Space Telescope into orbit just minutes ago, NASA administrator Bill Nelson cited Psalms 19:

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Merry Christmas, faithful readers!


  1. Yup. Way cool! A great Christmas present for all physics and space nerds out there (myself included).

  2. A great Christmas present for all seekers of truth. May the JWST be a complete success and help us understand the works of God!

    I had an imaginary friend once too! (I think I was five.. : )

  4. D Christian Harrison says:

    Happy Christmas, to you too, Peter!

    And I can’t wait for the first images to trickle in from the new telescope. I hear that it’s supposed to far surpass the quality of image from Hubble — and its imagery was awe-inspiring.

  5. Ah humanity! – to do Space so well but Earth so poorly. I’m thinking NASA should run the country.

  6. Science. It’s just like magic or miracles, but real. (From a sticker my daughter put on everyone’s gift this year). Also, applies to technology.
