2034: “We are going to have to delay the launch another 3 months”

I **really** hope I’m wrong, but at this point the most on-brand outcome for JWST is for the entire launch vehicle to explode on the pad or for the telescope fail to deploy.

At this pace Star Citizen will be finished before 😂

It’ll be worth the wait. This telescope is a game changer.

Note that the launch date hasnt *really* slipped. The current window was always *starting* on oct 31, and lasts into december. All this says is that they expect to need to push the launch further into the window.
