Webb space telescope nearing destination a million miles away

Thirty days outbound from Earth, the James Webb Space Telescope will slip into its parking orbit nearly a million miles away on Monday, an ideal spot to scan the heavens in search of faint infrared light from the first generation of stars and galaxies.

But getting there — and successfully deploying a giant sunshade, mirrors and other appendages along the way — was just half the fun.

Scientists and engineers now have to turn the $10 billion Webb into a functioning telescope, precisely aligning its 18 primary mirror segments so they work together as a single 21.3-foot-wide mirror, by far the largest ever launched

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The world’s biggest, most powerful space telescope arrived at its observation post 1 million miles from Earth on Monday, a month after it lifted off on a quest to behold the dawn of the universe.

On command, the James Webb Space Telescope fired its rocket thrusters for nearly five minutes to go into orbit around the sun at its designated location, and NASA confirmed the operation went as planned.

The mirrors on the $10 billion observatory still must be meticulously aligned, the infrared detectors sufficiently chilled and the scientific instruments calibrated before observations can begin in June.

But flight controllers in Baltimore were euphoric after chalking up another success.

"We’re one step closer to uncovering the mysteries of the universe. And I can’t wait to see Webb’s first new views of the universe this summer!” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement.

The telescope will enable astronomers to peer back further in time than ever before, all the way back to when the first stars and galaxies were forming 13.7 billion years ago. That's a mere 100 million years from the Big Bang, when the universe was created.

Besides making stellar observations, Webb will scan the atmospheres of alien worlds for possible signs of life.

“Webb is officially on station," said Keith Parrish, a manager on the project. “This is just capping off just a remarkable 30 days."

NASA Is Going to Plunge the International Space Station Into the Pacific Ocean

The International Space Station is being retired in 2030, after spending more than 30 years orbiting Earth. At the end of its service, NASA will crash the ISS into the Pacific Ocean in January 2031. Don’t worry, though; they are sending the station, which is roughly the size of a football field, to a very remote part of the ocean.

According to plans released by NASA, the ISS will be sunk into Point Nemo, a region in the South Pacific Ocean, also known as the South Pacific Oceanic Uninhabited Area. Point Nemo is a part of the ocean farthest from any land and has been used to crash other spacecraft. According to CNN, a total of 263 pieces of space debris have been sunk into Point Nemo since 1971.

Since its launch in 1998, more than 200 astronauts from 19 countries have been aboard the ISS. In the next eight years, before the hub is brought down, NASA plans on continuing to conduct big missions on the station.

“The International Space Station is entering its third and most productive decade as a groundbreaking scientific platform in microgravity,” said Robyn Gatens, director of the International Space Station at NASA Headquarters, in a press release. “This third decade is one of results, building on our successful global partnership to verify exploration and human research technologies to support deep space exploration, continue to return medical and environmental benefits to humanity, and lay the groundwork for a commercial future in low-Earth orbit.”

After the ISS is retired, NASA plans on partnering with private companies to create space stations, which will serve both private-sector space missions and government-run missions.

For us down on Earth, we should definitely try avoiding Point Nemo in early 2031, I suppose.

Mega Comet Arriving From the Oort Cloud Is 85 Miles Wide

Comet Bernardinelli-Bernstein is currently inbound from the Oort Cloud, a distant region of the solar system known for packing billions and possibly trillions of icy objects. The comet will make its closest approach to Earth in 2031, when it will come to within 11 au of the Sun (1 billion miles), in which 1 au is the average distance from Earth to the Sun. The comet, coming no closer than Saturn, won’t likely be visible to the unaided eye, but astronomers will be keeping a close watch, as it’s turning out to be a rather extraordinary object.

It occurs to me if it was going to hit Earth there is no way they would tell the public. Society would collapse.

All the astronomers wear masks while aligning the 18 mirrors to form a single image of a star for the camera on the James Webb Space Telescope.



By the way, dumb-asses who refuse to wear masks or get vaccinated aren't hired as high paid astronomers. Instead, they end up as truckers blocking bridges between Canada and USA.

Since his appointment in 2009, Martin has tracked NASA's development of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft.

Martin said that the operational costs alone for a single Artemis launch—for just the rocket, Orion spacecraft, and ground systems—will total $4.1 billion. This is, he said, "a price tag that strikes us as unsustainable." With this comment, Martin essentially threw down his gauntlet and said NASA cannot have a meaningful exploration program based around SLS and Orion at this cost.

What is striking about these costs is that they do not include the tens of billions of dollars that NASA has already spent developing the Orion spacecraft since 2005 and the Space Launch System rocket since 2011. If one were to amortize development costs over 10 flights of the SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft, the $4.1 billion figure cited by Martin would easily double.

That figure is far higher than NASA might have hoped. Five years ago, a senior NASA official told Ars that the space agency would like to get its operational costs for a single mission a year down to $2 billion or less. Another source at the time said the internal goal was $1.5 billion.

What you get for $4.1 billion (or $8.2 billion if development cost included):
