  1. First images from the James Webb Space Telescope

    The dawn of a new era in astronomy has begun as the world gets its first look at the full capabilities of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency). The telescope’s first full-color images and spectroscopic data were released during a televised broadcast at 10:30 a.m. EDT (14:30 UTC) on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. These listed targets below represent the first wave of full-color scientific images and spectra the observatory has gathered, and the official beginning of Webb’s general science operations. They were selected by an international committee of representatives from NASA, ESA, CSA, and the Space Telescope Science Institute.

    Absolutely breathtaking. The level of detail in the images captured by the JWSS is nothing short of astonishing, especially when compared to Hubble.

  2. Trebekbot for Slack

    A fun little time-waster I just built: It’s a Jeopardy! app, powered by the jService API, which sets up a perpetual game of Jeopardy! in your Slack channels. I strongly suggest you set this up in a separate channel if you decide to install it, it’s very addictive.

  3. Hunters kill 20 Yellowstone wolves that roamed out of park

    Park officials said in a statement to AP that the deaths mark “a significant setback for the species’ long-term viability and for wolf research.”

    One pack — the Phantom Lake Pack — is now considered “eliminated” after most or all of its members were killed over a two-month span beginning in October, according to the park.

    Absolutely sickening. We need to have wolves protected under the Endangered Species Act immediately. Please, take action.
