Today is a super exciting day! The James Webb Space Telescope, which will replace the Hubble Telescope, is going to launch!
Theresa and I were fortunate to get to see it multiple times during its build cycle, and any time family came to visit and viewing was allowed, we'd take them over to the high bay and viewing platform to look at the progress of assembling this complicated space telescope.
In 2019, during a family day, not only could you see it, but you could also get your picture taken in front of it! It was especially cool because the sunshield was deployed and the mirror boom was completed with the mirrors installed.
Godspeed James Webb! We're excited to see what you have to show us!
