It will do some great work, until some asshole's space Tesla auto pilots into it.

Yep. It's the most complex unmanned mission NASA has ever pulled off. It makes me giggle to think of how amazing a feat it is.

Agreed! I'm a space geek though. (closeted).  Purely armchair quarterback and know little other than it's farking awesome.

So much to learn and brilliant people helping on that road to the future.

JWST and Hubble have the same resolution. They just image different wavelengths in the spectrum.

now...with the above image in mind, how can a small object traveling in a heliocentric orbit roughly halfway out to Mars strike another only slightly larger object that resides in the gravity well of the Earth/Moon L2 point?
