    Webb Telescope

    Pretty cool. I first heard about it on the Spinning Logic podcast.

    I've been following it for a while. Excited to see what it can tell us about the origins of the universe and composition of other planets.

    It’s neat and fun but I can’t tell the difference between the real ones and artists renditions. All the scientists are so excited about what it can do though.

    They quoted Carl Sagan for credibility saying something “all this beauty and you took a picture of a black hole dave”

    I believe they’re all artists’ renditions unless you can see in infrared. The artist just happens to be a simple algorithm to convert infrared to the visible spectrum for us little humans.
