It's bullshit these blionares are taking trips to space while avoiding their taxes here. Immoral.

I see it as a positive. He plays the guinea pig himself with that much money to spare. Go Branson, go! Laughing

Probably the most important event for humanity in the past 20 years was today. James Webb Space Telescope launched succesfully into space today. It has been on development 25 years, cost 10B$ and will be the successor for Hubble Space Telescope.

It will take 29 days to get to L2 point, million miles away from Earth. And it should be fully operational in May 2022. It’s 100x more powerful than Hubble and uses infrared scanning technology to see things further away and with greater detail. It will scan thousands of potentially habitable worlds for signs of life, something Hubble wasn’t designed to do.

Following this space since a long time now, now it's come to fruition. Tears in my eye.

Yeah for some it's a life's work. I read that some scientists working on it weren't born when the development first started. Many things needed to be invented for it, and why it took so long.

It's safe in the L2 orbit. The journey went better than expected and the original 10 year lifespan is doubled now. Can't wait to see 200M years after the Big Bang.

First image released from James Webb Space Telescope, the closest ever image of the Big Bang. What you can see is thousands of distant galaxies, if you put your hand straight to the sky, the area is the size of grain of sand at the tip of your finger.

Here's comparison of Hubble's image of the same area: https://imgsli.com/MTE2Mjc3

There will be more images released tonight.

UHD version of the previous image.

Some context, JWST took the image in less than a day, where as Hubble needed several weeks to expose its image.

Oldest galaxy found just after weeks of data collecting, that formed just 300 million years after the Big Bang. And because universe is about 13.8 billion years old, we have now seen in to the past 98% of the whole existence of time.

Stunning.

Also oldest galaxy found again, that was just 180 million years after the start of time.
