Out of this World.
As soon as I heard about this James Webb Telescope, I knew I had to find a way of squeezing it into coolsh*t. However, I didn’t account for what a Brobdingnagian task this would prove to be, as doing so would require that I have at least some basic level of rudimentary knowledge about it. So don’t expect this to be terribly technical or detailed. Go to Brian Cox if you want that. Or that stool pigeon, Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Anyhow, if the information found during my 12 minutes of research is anything to go by, this great big telescope could utterly revolutionise our understanding of the universe. It’s even being described as a time machine due to being powerful enough to view past galaxies that have now perished but are still visible due to how slowly light travels. Yep, I’m also just finding out that light is actually incredibly slow on a universal scale. The telescope was launched on Christmas Day and has this week successfully deployed its sunshield, which is apparently trickier than putting up a parasol. Now it’s only a matter of time until we have explanations for some of life’s unanswerable mysteries, such as how the universe began, how planets are formed, how we fit into the Cosmos, and why they’re still making Pirates of the Caribbean films.Read Original Story
