  • Will the Webb Space Telescope see creation?

    It will enable us to see further back in time than we ever have before. Effing cool.

    Even cooler? We'll be able to analyze the atmospheres of exoplanets. No shit. If we detect an atmosphere with a chemical makeup like ours, damn, that's a pretty solid piece of evidence for life there.

    That isn't quite to the level of unambiguous contact, but will provide much room for discussion. Theologically, it will rock some to their core.

    It's really exciting to think about the discoveries Webb is going to make (those discoveries better be awesome after such a long wait. 😉)

    As for the prospect of seeing creation, it sounds like Webb will definitely be able to see further back in time than Hubble, i.e., ~100M years after the big bang when the first stars and galaxies formed, but beyond that there's an opaque wall of dense, hot plasma that prevents any instrument from seeing much further, if my understanding is correct.

      This marks the beginning of the aligning process of the 18 mirrors to direct light onto one to observe the infrared light coming from distant worlds, galaxies, and the origin of our universe.

          Your understanding is correct. It's called the "Dark Age" of the universe: https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/...0were%20formed.

          So damned exciting!
