    How about Jack (Just the facts, Ma'am) Webb?

      A majority? There were about 1200 people who signed the petition. I expect there are more than 2400 astronomers out there.

        I still can’t work out if money is real or not

          Unless they installed the lens backwards .

            Evan would straighten them out.

              Looking at the same item. I suspect at least that much Macona. I agree JR

                  Aostling- I did not mean to challenge your thread about this- I probably got a bit excited and forgot that you had already started a thread about JWST. I'm following both now, and perhaps they will go in different directions-
                  I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                    Thanks Darryl, being 80 makes me very understanding of any lapse in memory.

                    The good news is that Webb is now fully deployed!

                      I'm hoping we don't see this.

                        This Atlantic article describes the tension:

                            JRouche, if you came here to sober up you chose wisely. We're all here because we're not all there.

                              Huygens Optics did a short video on telescope resolution vs wavelength and diameter and talks about the Webb:

                                The video is instructive, especially in its discussion of the simple equation equating angular resolution to λ/D. This explains why despite the larger aperture the Webb images may not be as sharp as those obtained in the visible wavelengths. It tempers my expectation of what we should soon be seeing.
