Amazing! Thousands of galaxies can be seen in just one tiny spot in the sky:

This is what is truly mind-blowing:

Webb’s image covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground – and reveals thousands of galaxies in a tiny sliver of vast universe.

Oh look, there's Joel skinny-dipping in his backyard...
We are always in the pool skinny dipping. That's what a private pool is for! My wife lays out topless and we are right near Chandler airport. She said the other day when she was in the backyard, a helicopter did like 4 fly-bys when she was out there. :biglaugh:

Check this one out. One of my buddies is pulling data and processing it from the JWST archive that hasn't been processed and released to the media yet. This reminds me of the wormholes from Stargate. It's just not wrapped as tight.

It's amazing out there.

In a single work week, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope broke the record for the oldest galaxy ever observed​


The James Webb Space Telescope, NASA's new infrared heavyweight, peered into the vast expanse and found a 13.5 billion-year-old galaxy, which researchers believe is the oldest galaxy ever detected. The powerful telescope's science operations began last week.

The spinning collection of stars, gas, and dust bound together by gravity dates to 300 million years after the Big Bang. This beats the previous record for the most distant and oldest galaxy ever detected by 100 million years, a record which was held by a galaxy known as GN-Z1. When GN-Z1 was spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2016, the galaxy's light had taken 13.4 billion years to reach Hubble.

Researchers from the Harvard and Smithsonian Center of Astrophysics shared their findings about the new record-holder galaxy, called GLASS-z13, in a duo of preprints published Wednesday. The scientists also identified another galaxy that is roughly the same age, called GLASS-z11, which also trumped previous records.

I think I'm one of the few that enjoyed this movie lol. It doesn't hurt that Amy Smart is in it. I believe Breckin Meyer & here did a couple of movies together.

It's because we are from the 217 Jon. It gives us great taste lol. ;)
There is a great facebook page called 217 Problems. All the small town drama/gossip you can handle, plus the almost daily 217 drive-ins (people driving there cars INTO gas stations, restaurants, etc seems to be a real problem in teh 217
