These images are a triumph of human curiosity, engineering, genius, and passion. They are not only gorgeous but also incredibly scientifically important. And the goal to learn more about our universe invariably results in spin-off technologies that improve human life — innovations that frankly likely wouldn’t have been developed in our lifetimes otherwise.

We can and must empower ever-greater understanding of our world by championing public institutions like NASA.

Please share the links!

Go Webb!
