Subject: RE: BS: SPACE - James Webb Telescope LAUNCH
We tell it as it truly is, Donuel old chap. Now suck it up, look at yourself and talk to us about telescopes in space, right? The first images are now coming back to us, a mosaic of 18 images of the same star seen by the 18 mirror segments. The images will be used to align the mirrors correctly so that future images will be pin-sharp. My understanding of the technicalities is limited but it's enough to get me excited.
