    My dad worked at the company (Northrop) which built the telescope. He was lucky enough to work in an office a few buildings away from the facility where it resided, meaning he had the rare privilege to see the telescope in person daily. All the employees at the company had security clearance to enter a viewing deck where he watched it get built over the years. Sometimes he'd get guest passes and bring my family and friends in to watch the guys in bunny suits work on it. The thing was MASSIVE. 3 stories tall at least, and just one of the mirror panels was about a third the size of an average adult. I remember being taught about how the mirrors are made of beryllium (highly toxic material) and were covered in a coat of pure gold because something to do with gold's reflective or thermal properties.
    He didn't work on the telescope project itself, but his work around the company definitely helped contribute financially in a small way. Very proud of my dad's work, and I'm glad to see so many people interested in this. I'm glad it had a successful launch!

      @Killua i see your point and i kinda agree because 1 per cent of the budget is not much. its 21 billion dollars which is a lot of money in any situation but when you say 1 per cent it seems like an okay amount to spend on space exploration.

      Mario Portillo assuming that wars are good and have meaning because they're "training" and yeah if we (humans) in the future we're talking about were destined to have wars with aliens, will that be good?? What's the meaning of the wars that'll happen then?. And whose plan is this in the first place? Sounds too optimistic since wars have never been but a fight for power and control, so saying that they're training implies that there's a higher plan (which is obviously not us, for the reason i mentioned above)
      So it's either an intelligent designer that intended it all to happen and we're just tools for whatever purpose this designer wants.. and there's no such a thing so over all it's an idea that sadly isn't going anywhere

Look at it this way: when "heaven" is on one side of Earth (enjoy it while it lasts btw), "hell" is on the other. War in Ukraine (although probably short-lasting) and in other places before it is a sheer example of it. And not just wars, but also poverty and crime rates.

    There are so many ways we humans waste money, but THIS is not a waste at all. The things that have changed, just in my lifetime based on observation, is remarkable. I remember when Voyager reached the outer planets, which made 7 year old me excited. Hubble changed everything. Those deep fields are a total mindfuck. One of the most important pictures ever taken.
    Expectations are SO HIGH for JWST. I’ll be excited when it deploys it’s shield successfully and reaches its destination without issue. So many things have to go right. I can’t imagine how nervous the people will be that have spent their careers building this thing.
    Can’t wait to find out what we learn!

      @zoom -zip jeez, I'm just saying that exponentially, the human knowledge grows like wildfire you know what I mean?? The Galileo shit was just a metaphor jesus I mean what I'm saying is compared from the 1600s versus now we've achieved some unrealistic findings, so I'm basically asking what would our descendants discover say 1000, 10000 years from now? Comprende ese?

      @JokerMan im not talking about that im talking about the fact that their options were limited, fire is one discovery which itself doesnt lead to many discoveries either just like the sticks and stones, they didnt have a revolution of discovering something that had the potential to drive them to the discovery of many other things thats why they were stuck with sticks and stones for a long tiem

      @JokerMan yeah but sticks and stones dont lead to the discovery of that many things, maybe better tools and ways to make houses, general surviving materials etc, but with the things we already had 400 years ago there was a lot of potential for discovery of new better modern technology yk

    Didn't they find all the loose screws that went missing during construction? I'm afraid some might have ended up inside the scope itself. It's gonna cause problems if some of it get shaken up, like during launch.

    it has taken a long time to get this thing going and it will someday soon be up - but the bigger versions of it (as well as seperate light shields will super enhance them) will be pumping out rapidly after its up. it wont be the biggest baddest telescope for a long period of time, but it will be symbolic i suppose. I bet before 2050 we have one out there that has thousands of tiny configurable mirrors and 16 times bigger.

    A couple of questions, will the James Webb Telescope be able to:
    1. Establish
    with absolute certainty if a dyson sphere is built around the tabby star.
    2. Find the oumamua comet and establishment its trajectory?
    3. Establish if there is habitable life in proxima centauri and the habitable planets in the trappist system?
    4. Find any rogue undetected planets within the oort cloud?
