Space really does seem to be interesting. A lot of great things are happening there. But who would have thought that one of the new great innovations that would be happening in space would be driven by scientists from the small nation of Ireland.
|Big, beautiful space|
It is good to know that Irish scientists will be part of a team building a new $10 billion space telescope that, as the most expensive ever built, will supersede the Hubble telescope and help us see the first stars and galaxies formed after the Big Bang. The new telescope will be 10 times more powerful than the Hubble telescope and help us observe the first stars in the universe.
James Webb. That is the name of the telescope. The James Webb Space Telescope will be more than 10 times more powerful than the Hubble Space Telescope, the best telescope ever built. The new telescope may be 100 times better than the Hubble at seeing the first stars formed after the Big Bang, potentially revealing new information about how our universe was formed.
Wow. Just wow. I am sure that Astronomers all around the world would be dancing in their pants. This leaves me to wonder? What has your own country contributed to the space journey. Don't boast if you are from the US, Canada, EU, Russia or China, or Japan. You no what, never mind.
