This afternoon (2pm PT, 5pm ET) NASA will reveal the first images from their new space telescope. You can see them on their live stream (this is a continuous stream, and you could start watching right now for six hours before you’ll see the expected stunning images).
Now I don’t know what to call the Giant Space Widget. It’s been officially named after an administrator and homophobe, rather than a scientist, and I’d rather not use that name at all. To see why, maybe you could fill some of the time you’re waiting by watching this video:
I’m looking forward to the images, but I’m going to have to refer to it as the [PLACEHOLDER] Space Telescope, unless someone has a better name. Why is it named after a homophobic bureaucrat anyway?
