\hopes, but does not expect it will really end at 22

The James Webb Space Telescope launches on December 22nd. That's the "Astronomer's Christmas," as we've waited for over 2 decades, spending incredible amounts of time, effort, and resources, to prepare.

The mirrors are hexagonal.

For folks looking to know more about this incredible thing, here's the NASA site for the James Webb Space Telescope.

Seriously, it may actually, dramatically, change the way we view and understand the universe. Just as long as we don't drop it.

That SOB better work so well we can see up the Universe's asshole.

It is (better be) an awesome set of tech, but the time and money spent on it is unconscionable.   Cost twice the GDP of Barbados.

Again. It already had a little drop while mating to the spacecraft
