NASA's $10 Billion James Webb Telescope

NASA's $10 Billion James Webb Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope is about to revolutionise humanity’s comprehension of the cosmos. On its five-year mission it’ll gather heretofore unimagined insights into the birth of galaxies – and offer a realistic shot at finding life on other planets. Or, some worry, it’ll simply fall apart during its insanely complicated deployment.

  1. Then I raised my eyes and looked…… coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven.

    Zechariah 5:9 NKJV
    The bible saw about satellites long before they were thought off. Do you need to 'un-cover' another big thing? Read your bible.

  2. I love it just wish for that price tag serviceability could have been accounted for in some way!! Yes, I know its millions of miles away from the earth. Nothing is impossible. Alright bring on the critics!

  3. As complicated as this is, much of it is answered with Math. What I'm wondering is if there is anything that is more of a " roll of the dice"? I realize they can't do anything about space debris, but is there anything else that they are hoping for a bit of a 50/50 chance? Like maybe the unfolding of the telescope? Or how do they determine that without doing that in space? It feels like, without this thing being done in space itself, it's going to be very unpredictable at too many points; but hopefully that is not right and the Math is all there?

  4. did you experience any medical urgency or some sort of emptying bowel syndrome while narrating JWST. I watched more than 35 videos on JWST but this is the worst of all those. Nasty narration

  5. Man the fact that there are people out there smart enough to design, build and launch something like this just makes me feel so dumb lol. I can barely cook a frozen pizza without burning it and these geniuses are doing this. Its so awesome to live in a world where people are pursuing projects like these. Cant wait to see what the telescope captures!

  6. hopefully they deploy the thing above the dangerous kessler sindrome zone which Russia helped to accellerate after blowing up one of their own sattelites so that debree does not hit those absolutely beautiful golden mirrors? hopefully nothing bad happens to the 10 billion dollar piece of tech?

  7. Unfortunately they will find the universe virtually a BARREN infinite space, nothing buy rocks and gas as far as the eyes can see, but by the realization time, we will have successfully KILLED this one and only planet, completeing our mission for suicide.

  8. Good thing we don’t have any pressing issues here on earth to spend these billions on: like cancer research, climate change, Covid XXX, alternative energy and the like

  9. What are the chances it actually cost $10B though? Seems like a HUGE number to round to. It's tinfoil and some pipes and a mirror. Can get everything at WALMART for like $97. U guys aren't stealing are you?

  10. They all made money on this thing, 10B look back in time BS, that’s my Social Security and what 1 million of my veteran friends when I don’t even own a car 10 billion the state are Thieves better than any Paris jewel thieves taxpayer and 10 billion that’s a small portion of what they’re sending up every week
