Potential Cancellation of the JWST

    What are your thoughts on this? The U.S. government is considering scrapping the Hubble replacement (James-Webb Space Telescope). This is due to mismanagement and going over budget billions of dollars.

    This potential revolutionary telescope would be able to look far back into the very beginnings of the universe and could have helped solve many of the mysteries that the universe poses.

    No worries. I'll leave this thread here as a pointer to the other thread, in case some Astro folks don't usually venture into P&WA.
