James Webb Telescope: The Holy Inquisition Also Strikes NASA
Can a space telescope be a symbol of homophobia?
And above all, even if it were, could it have become so twenty years after its construction and naming?
Apparently, yes… in the era of Politically Correct can really open such a debate! Unintended victim: the James Webb Space Telescope, the designated successor to the historic Hubble Telescope that is set to launch next October 31 to allow NASA a strengthening of its deep space exploration capability.
James Webb Space Telescope is almost ready and it will change name.
Initially, when the telescope was designed in the ’90s, its name was supposed to be an aseptic “Next Generation Space Telescope”, but in 2002 it was decided to give it the name of James Edwin Webb.
And who was he to deserve such an honor?
James Edwin Webb was the second person to ever lead NASA, at the helm from 1961 until 1968 during the storied Apollo era
