The Webb Telescope

Post by Darkjedi on 2011-02-02, 23:25

This sucker is scheduled to launch from earth sometime in 2014.

It's design and construction is a collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).



Now just mount a gigantic laser on that, and you have a sniper star destroyer!



Hecks yeah!

New planets? I'm excited about seeing the galaxies of gazillions of years ago form. Now that's cool.

Oh, and this is really going to be something to watch. If that thing breaks, it's not like they can just fly up there for repairs. It's going to be way too far away for that.

NASA, ESA and CSA: Putting awesome sauce on your otherwise bland donuts.

Also, the fuck spellcheck?! You don't recognize ESA or CSA?
