JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE - The James Webb Space Telescope pictured, as it propels away from Earth’s upper atmosphere - headed into deep space. The image was captured on 12-24-21 by cameras on board the discarded upper stage. En route, a terrifying number of complicated deployment procedures will be performed, by the most advanced telescope every built, traveling to a preprogrammed Lagrange point. All this will be done autonomously by onboard AI, since the telescope will be too far away from Earth for instantaneous communication. Hopefully amazing photos taken of our planetary neighbors will soon be forthcoming.
