JWST: Our Grand Quest
It hit me I’m here, working on JWST, helping to build the greatest space-based observatory ever created. I know this already, but sometimes among all the test procedures, quality assurance signoffs, spreadsheets, backwards progress, long days, security lines, I forget. It is good to remember that I am helping the human race look into the darkness, find inspiration.
It is one of the grandest quests we have, to understand, inspire, and keep opening up the universe of possibilities. It keeps our inner wonder alive and thriving, as well as clearly shows that there is something out there bigger than any of us; something beautiful that we are a part of.
I can think of no other task more deserving of our energy in this moment. Go team humans!
