An Ariane 5 rocket is launching NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). JWST is the largest and most advanced space telescope ever built and will study every phase of cosmic history. Liftoff is scheduled for 7:20 a.m. Eastern (12:20 UTC) from the Guiana Space Centre in French Guiana.

LIVE: Launch of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rARTOhbLDg

A successful launch and vehicle separation of the James Webb telescope.  The first of many deployment steps was achieved with the successful unfolding of the solar array.  Over three hundred more deployment steps must occur before and after the telescope arrives at its LaGrange orbit parking spot.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Was cool to see the solar array begin deploying just as the second stage camera rotated away.

Also, JWST basic tracking info.

https://www.jwst.nasa.gov/content/webbLaunch/whereIsWebb.html

It's headed out at a leisurely 1.4509 miles (2.3359 Km) per second.

And it's out of focus.  I wonder if the red streamer attached to that cover is flapping around in the solar wind?  :laugh:
