Webb What we are looking at is 2 000 000 years of human evolution ! Truly fascinating ! Webb honeycomb Webb The most amazing concepts are found within the structures built by NASA and friends... if I were Winnie the Pooh I may mistake the shape for a honey comb and try to climb inside!! Hugs!! 🚀🌈🦋🕳❤️🚀

Webb Hi guys, I just started making content, I think, I hope that at least someone is interested in it ... There is only one person reading me, can someone read me?

Webb So cool! Saw something similar at the NASA exhibit in Super Bowl park in Houston a few years back. Webb science and physics is why Webb man this thing is freaking huge Webb Quit faking the Martian surface you fraudulent fucks! Webb Bless the launching go well. Webb 5.....4.....3.....2...... Webb Why does it look like a giant screaming honeycomb?

Webb Oop Webb Webb Amazing how this uses the same hexagonal shape efficiency as a beehive! Webb It looks like an angry honey comb yelling at a slab of tin foil 😂🐝 Webb I hope that the observations from James Webb Space telescope will be of the same or higher quality than the hubble telescope .

Webb Amazing Webb 🐤の顔にしか見えない。🐥 Webb Sure looks excited 🤗 Webb Had to do a triple take, looks like something out of The Amazing World of Gumball Webb i Understood: undisturbed , something about: say easy. Kind Regards. Webb I wonder about air and humidity, trapped within the folds, rapidly escaping during launch.

Webb Excellent Webb Is there any plans to collaborate with space agencies oversees who are building leo stations to continue NASA experiments in orbit? Or are we focusing all funding on the Moon and beyond? Either way, Im so excited!! Webb My theory about 'what was around before the big bang' Webb so cute!

Webb They will be in Webs of disappointment if it doesn’t work. Ha ha? Not funny ik Webb First glances can really throw you off. I thought is was a modern art installment depicting Lisa Simpson. Great News that this important tool is getting closer to being deployed. I am waiting with breathless anticipation for what it will reveal of the Cosmos.

Webb I hope it is not delayed again.. Webb ✌ Webb Honeybees powering our ecosocial systems on earth.... AND in space! Webb Webb It's looks really good. Good job to the people who worked on this Webb Amazing technology Webb 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼💙 Webb How is it that a telescope designed for a mission life of 10 years, still has not launched after 25 years?

Webb I admired the design 🥰🥰🥰 Webb **I'm committed to the latest Technology** Webb ✍️✍️😊😊.... Webb you should connect the Hubble and the Web telescopes together so they are pointing at the exact same spot TOGETHER Webb It's beautiful. Webb Webb All I see is: 😮 Webb Launching and deploying the great JWST is going to make Perseverance's 'seven minutes of terror' look like a walk in the park 😬

Webb Give me the launch codes, you can trust me Webb للموجودين ف الردود تابعوني🙄 Webb CNSA clear of this fraud organization Webb It’s beautiful. Webb قولو والله Webb Webb it looks like a mario character... Webb Walking_Silo
