                        Why do the stars in the nebula picture look like they have a pattern on them? Have to zoom in on the full res pic.

                        Edit: I've been informed that this is likely due to the hexagon mirror shape creating a diffraction pattern.

                          I guess we shouldn't have anything named after 60's era people of significance (or older) because they were racist or abusive or something......

                          I honestly didnt know who James Webb was (or cared, i just assumed he was some scientist or someone who made a major discovery, not the head of a NASA) cuz i care more about the telescope itself and its findings.

                          Its cool to see the difference between hubble and JW, its almost like going from bad/compromised vision to wearing glasses lol.

                            Ya read that the 'spikes' are relatively close stars and should just be ignored.

                              Nope sorry. But if this is the reality of what he did, then his name is a poor choice. He had a choice as well, he made it and reality is that choice doesn't match with the ideals behind this telescopes mission. Not complicated, not about being woke. It's just about choosing to name things in a way that properly match up with what it is trying to be achieved.

                                Let's cancel the name America then, because surely the original medieval guy that inspired the name was a misogynist, homophobic and racist guy like everybody from his age were.

                                  Do we know that though about Amerigo Vespucci?

                                  I mean, we know what James Webb is responsible for, we're not that far removed from his tenure, and we have documentation and people still around whose lives were impacted.

                                  I honestly don't know much of anything about Amerigo (I had to look up his last name) or anything about him beyond being an advocate of exploration and one of the first guys who articulated the then radical idea that what they found was a new continent.

                                    We don't need to go the fallacy route.

                                    It's not about cancelling anyone or making wild false comparisons. We seem to now know Webb did stuff that does not jive with the mission of the project. Uncomplicated. You just acknowledge that, see the problem, rename it and we all move on.

                                    His work, everything he did stands just fine. But the idea here behind this telescope is to unite all people in the exploration and advancement of science and space for everyone. You can't do that under the name of person who did the opposite.

                                        Its the current generation we live in.
                                        If something is to be named after a historic person of significance, their life will now have to be vetted all the way down their lineage through their parents, and their grandparents and great grandparents, etc to ensure its squeaky clean.

                                        And i think that would probably eliminate every single person of significance in the 60's or older becuase they will be found to be creepy/racist/sexist/etc in one form or another.

                                          Can we go back to talking about the TELESCOPE? I liked that better

                                            Seconded, take all this other crap to P&R.

                                              Hey gents - just a friendly word as this is a good thread to follow for those who love the topic.

                                              Please refrain from posting any more P&R related material. Discussion about a thread cleanup is underway.

                                              Thanks folks

                                                If this thing sees farther objects much clearer than Hubble, will it show more detail on closer objects than hubble?
                                                Like would we be able to see things that we missed with the hubble shots?

                                                and anyone know when the next batch of pics come out?

                                                  Technically yes, closer and tons more resolution but remember that JW is an infrared scope unlike Hubble that looked at visible spectrum.

                                                    Yes it's long and if you've been following the minutia it glosses over a lot but if anyone wants an hour long summary of the history (yes it even has a blurb about *that*) here you go. I didn't even know it was down here during Hurricane Harvey and if the power went out the thing would've heated up so fast it would've been really bad news (it was down in Houston in a huge chamber that took it 30 days to cool it down to operating temperature). Lots of happy footages of the command center as each major milestone is crossed. They obviously had the images before the embargo.

                                                            NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has peered into the chaos of the Cartwheel Galaxy, revealing new details about star formation and the galaxy’s central black hole. Webb’s powerful infrared gaze produced this detailed image of the Cartwheel and two smaller companion galaxies against a backdrop of many other galaxies. This image provides a new view of how the Cartwheel Galaxy has changed over billions of years.

                                                              So the cartwheel galaxy...is either a boob or an implant....

                                                              It should be renamed the silicon galaxy.

                                                              Its pretty amazing to know that if humans were within that cluster, they'd just be a microscopic particle (or even smaller...) within the very microscopic center of the galaxy.

Over time, they will begin to build a clearer understanding of how stars form and burst out of these dusty clouds over millions of years.
