So NASA knows how the telescope is operating, but they can't tell what the images will look like. Fingers crossed it won't be like the Hubble.
I would hope that NASA allowed for the ability to facilitate hands-on repairs in the future.

Yeah I was wrong. I did not realize "Earth" was a crucial part of the definition. That's interesting.

To me, even more incredible than that image - which to my eye is barely discernibly different from some of the deepest images we've already got - is stuff like this:

https://webbtelescope.org/contents/m...BCCBKCABAQH0V7

The additional data really helping us narrow down what are/aren't separate galaxies is awesome. The ways in which we are able to narrow down estimates of the composition and mass of the universe are going to help in so many ways. For example: understanding what we should/should not find from this next run of tests at the LHC over the next four years.

I thought that too for about a split second. Then I decided to find images of the same field of view of each telescope side by side.

It's not even close. Look at all that gravitational lensing on the 1st pic (right side)! The amount of detail the Webb picks up in the second pic (left side) by being able to look "through" the cosmic dust using the infrared is jaw dropping.

Also of note.

The famous Hubble Deep Field image took approximately 240 hours of imaging time.

It took the Webb just 12.5 hours.

We're going to be able to glean so much more information out of the Webb.

I admit....I was skeptical, especially when they reported the meteorite damage. But those are some amazing photos. I look forward to what else it's able to show us.
