    Is anyone else watching the deployment with eager excitement?

    Yeah, I've been excited. I'm still kicking myself for missing the live launch I waited most of my life for.

    2022-2032 is the UNESCO International Decade of Indigenous Languages! Consider learning one.

    I follow this since the telescope was only on paper. It's a great achievement! Soon we will have very crisp images from the universe

    Absolutely yes.  Never scrolled this far down on forums :)
    Another 4 months of calibration and hopefully 15 to 20 years of work

    Can't wait to see what this telescope can do. 

    I heard that Hubble has a new discovery coming out soon. That should be interesting!

    Without the shuttle program it does have to be in working order on launch.

    The hubble telescope did have to be adjusted by a shuttle mission ie fixed.

    If it isnt right on launch its a white elephant.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    Even with the Shuttle that would be the case, given its out at the L2. Anyway, the optics seem to be in good shape given the alignment photo that was released the other week, now its a case of calibrating the various instruments and ironing out the data pipelines.

    I haven’t followed it blow by blow, but I’m aware of it and will be quite interested to see what images and information it sends back. I love to learn about new discoveries regarding the cosmos.

    I want to see what Hubble can be redirected to do while JW does some of the heavy lifting.  Thousands of projects on back burner as a backlog that could provide so much information!

    Good thing they didn't take the first pictures of space in infrared range, I just did a picture search and was somewhat disturbing that everything was red. Had kinda forgot the whole telescope after it had been launched. Hope they find something extraordinary with it.

    We build telescopes to look deeper into time & space, only to find out that there is more we can't see lol.

    These new deep field photos are easily the coolest photos ever taken. I wish my father was still here to see this, he would have loved it.

    Mind blowing images coming from the JWST...  :)   if you havent seen this then its well worth a look as this amazing tool gives immense perspective on where (and how tiny) these images are on the sky

    I cannot wait for them to find something that f**ks with a few of their theories.

    Yes, that would be fantastic - I'm pretty sure most astronomers would sell their left nut for a paradigm-shaking observation. On the other side of the coin, imagine if all that effort went into a project that produced nothing but mild confirmation of prior probabilities. That would be a little disappointing, but we'd still have pretty pictures and a fascinating view backwards in time.
