JWST Update for December 17, 2021
The communication problem between the telescope and the rocket has been corrected. Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator, says December 24, 2021 at 6:20 AM CST is still the launch time. Less than one week!!
Now they will encapsulate the telescope within the Ariane 5 fairing. Next milestone will be the roll-out to the launch pad on December 22. Fingers crossed, let’s light this candle!!
I’ll be chomping on my lucky peanuts that Friday morning if anyone wants to text me, Ad Astra, Jim M.
