Loving science through an artist’s eyes

Thank you NASA for allowing me to hear the many perspectives and excitement of those pioneers who have created the James Webb Telescope. As a designer my first fascination was with the orchestration of so many beautiful parts, but what you’ve illustrated is the vast coordination of so many brilliant scientists and their unified focus on early stars and the beginning of our universe. It’s a dream almost incomprehensible and I’ll be so excited to see what’s discovered!
