Statement from Sean O’Keefe Regarding Images from James Webb Space Telescope
Syracuse University Professor and Former NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe offers thoughts on the recently released images from the James Webb Space Telescope.
Professor O’Keefe says: “The images from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) are a strong reminder of how little we know about the vast universe we are part of. We are beginning to see the constant, evolving formations of the universe going back over 13 billion years, and are now able to ‘see’ further in distance and further back in time. The telescope itself is an amazing technological achievement, as its operation requires no service (we can’t get there, as it’s over 1 million km away) except continued monitoring from afar. JWST was designed to last 10 years, but if past is prologue (Hubble has last 30 years and Mars Rovers lasted more than a decade), it will last longer.”
