Title: JWST first pictures
Post by: Kevin Hall on 12/28/2021 06:21 pm
Now James Webb Space Telescope is on its way to transform into its final form, however first pictures will be able only after 6 months of its travelling along space. Here is an interesting article on this topic:

According https://webb.nasa.gov/content/webbLaunch/whereIsWebb.html?units=metric, the MIRI cooling complete at 7K on day L+103, just three days after planned. It's too close (just 3%) from the target. t's amazing how precise is NASA on the commissioning process.

That wasn't the first image though, by then JWST had taken about 14,000 images.

Maybe some leak on confidential information?

"Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, confirmed that images of an exoplanet’s atmospheric spectrum will be shared with the public on July 12."

My guess is the Próxima c planet direct observation, confirming it's existence by undoubted proof. A view like that can justify the cientists getting near to tears as he said. “It’s an emotional moment when you see nature suddenly releasing some of its secrets. And I would like you to imagine and look forward to that.”

For those who are counting minutes to the public share of those photos like me follow https://webb.nasa.gov/content/webbLaunch/countdown.html

The live view of this epic moment will be broadcast on https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive.

Now we are living last days of pre JWST hera on astronomy.

Thanks Biden for the early publication, to Barbara Mikulski to fight for it and thousands cientists or not who make it possible. (edited, thanks by the credits correction, Mr. Eric Hedman)

Thanks Biden.
If you want to thank anyone, thank Senator Barbara Mikulski. She was the one who fought for it during the delays and cost overruns to keep it from being canceled.  She's the one Bill Nelson thanked during the presser today.
