This is crazy! It makes sense, but 6 degrees Kelvin is about as cold as it can possibly be. That they needed to make coolers for a telescope that’s already colder then anything else, is wild. I can’t wait for what develops from this!


I hope the author is proud of the last line “Now that it’s at optimal temperature, Webb’s MIRI is ready to provide some of the coolest cosmic images Earth has ever seen.”


I’m so blue balled waiting for the images and discoveries this will find. I can’t wait!


Awesome, can’t wait to see the void in better detail.


I am more disappointed that the site is using Fahrenheit as a measurement. Am I the only one??
