  1. Re: The Power Of The James Webb Telescope in Space To Be Launched in 2021

    Fun idea. Sounds like a good old Einstein prank. And the vid said nothing about discovering one, just saying. ~8O[/QUOTE]

    The British sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf had a lot of fun with the concept of...

    Primary Mirrors aligned. Resolving power is ridiculously good. A few dotting of the i's and crossing of the t's then we're in for something magical!

    First images of star in Ursa Major captured (nothing spectacular yet) but purposefully captured 18 different mirror segments. Fine tuning mode.

    Dr Becky conveys pretty well the excitement felt by...

    Apologies for going slightly off topic but it's not that hard with one of those laser jobbies they are using, they aren't expensive either.

    PS. Santa can I have one of those nice Dobsonians like...

    The JWST is now fully deployed.

    Next will be positioning and stabalizing in L2 point so that optimal operating temperatures are reached.

    Then calibration of the primary mirror segments....

    Current Phase: The Port Primary Mirror Wing is fully deployed and latched.

    Nominal Event Time: Launch + 13 days (Friday 1/7/22)

    The left/port (+V2) wing of the primary mirror is fully deployed...

    JWST will be a Christmas gift to all humans if this goes according to plan.

    I'm getting stressful/anxious now.. hopefully it's all minor issues and just being meticulous. I really want this thing to work !
  11. Re: The Power Of The James Webb Telescope in Space To Be Launched in 2021

    Man, wouldn't that be something if the Webb telescope had this sort of resolution....[/QUOTE]


    If all goes well with launch and deployment we will have resolution of images that will make Hubble...
  12. Re: The Power Of The James Webb Telescope in Space To Be Launched in 2021

    Really looking forward to this one being deployed and fingers crossed they get it right because as far as I understand they got 1 shot at it.

    If I were operating that thing first thing I would do...
