more #JWST goodness...a LOT of the first year of data is public immediately, so there should be a pretty steady stream of awesomeness 😬twitter.com/AkAstronomy/st…C
So my takeaway - gawk at these gorgeous images. Revel in the beauty of the universe. Then go hug your loved ones & try to understand those who you might have conflict with. We’re all the same stuff. To channel @eddievedder “We’re invincible when we love” youtube.com/watch?v=WY7POk…
I mentioned it in the #NASA broadcast, but I do love how these images hint at our connectedness. Our human origins lie in similar stuff as that gorgeous orange gas & dust (ala Sagan - star-stuff 🤗). We connected - to the cosmos, and also to each other#JWSTTP
People asked me all last week how the images made me FEEL. Lots of things. Joyful. Ultimately: hopeful. We humans can come together to build this incredible machine, of unparalleled complexity & difficulty - AND IT WORKS. SPECTACULARLY. #JWST
AND THIS. This one - this is the one that made me cry, y’all. Look how astoundingly beautiful. The universe is beautiful. #JWST #MondayMotivation
Realizing I never did a real “summary” of allll the #JWST excitement last week…honestly it all still feels a little surreal. I’ve been working on this mission at @NASAGoddard for almost 14 years, and involved a few years prior to that unofficially as a grad student. AND NOW THIS
One mile-long procession of 52 buses. 4,368 empty seats in honor of the number of children killed this year alone by gun violence. We are honored to share this moving work from our long-time partner @ChangeTheRef.

The most distant galaxies in the universe…and ALSO JUPITER #jwst blogs.nasa.gov/webb/2022/07/1…
today i've gone back and forth between "Heavenly vieeeews" and "jiggle jiggle" ...somebody help my brain i need sleep @coldplay @louistheroux #jwst
and they really DON'T jiggle - the jitter is EXCEPTIONALLY small 😝#jwstt
I’ve been trying (and often failing) to hold back tears for days, but this did me in. Heavenly views indeed. ✨💜#jwstttwitter.com/coldplay/statu…q
I’m still gazing at those #JWST images! If you fancy another look, here’s our piece that ran last night on TV, ft the fantastic @astraughnomer and @markmccaughrean - made by fantastic @alisonfrancis and @kc_camera

Home and showered and gonna rest. WHAT A DAY. Cheers, y’all, to the bestest ever space telescope!! #jwst
That’s all I got right now 😂 more nuanced commentary later#jwstt
Can’t believe the day is almost here! Rehearsals all day at @NASAGoddard 😀✨#jwstty
We're mere hours away from @POTUS unveiling the deepest, clearest view of the cosmos ever—the first science image from the James Webb Space Telescope. While you wait, read my @sciam Q&A with the incomparable @janerrigby, "the woman who makes Webb work." scientificamerican.com/article/meet-t…

Who needs sleep amiright?!! 🙃�#jwstst
Almost back to my house from running errands when Alive comes on, so naturally I sit in my car for it to finish even though I’ve heard this song literally hundreds (thousands?) of times. Bc one does not turn off @PearlJam @98Rock
One of my all-time favorite songs was playing on the radio when I got in the car this morning to go to @NASAGoddard for the 1st in-person rehearsal for the #jwst image reveal! I don’t believe in signs, but if I did - I would think this is one 😀8
Here's a fun #ThrowbackThursday - when I got to show @BillNye & @RobertPicardo around @NASAGoddard to see #JWST! Now we're just days away from seeing the first images 😱youtube.com/watch?v=ZYrA7R…J
The Universe is always inviting us to look up. In just FIVE DAYS, a new era of astronomy will be upon us, and I'm certain we'll learn things that surprise and astound us. Here's my @Google Zeitgeist talk from a few years back #JWST #ThursdayThoughts youtube.com/watch?v=oDf3B-…
Even this "unexpected" test data is stunning 🤩 next week is gonna blow y'all away �#JWSTST Fine Guidance Sensor Provides a Previeblogs.nasa.gov/webb/2022/07/0…Dqh
Thinking back to what I STILL consider to be one of my most fun days at @NASA, when we filmed this video for Late Night w/ @jimmyfallon 😂 now we are just SIX DAYS from#JWSTT first images! �#JWSTGotchuhyoutube.com/watch?v=eD-WiX…rx
Leading up to next week's big reveal of the first full-color images, check out this @60Minutes segment w/ @ScottPelley about our incredible telescope!! 🤩#JWSTTyoutube.com/watch?v=sMxdeU…R
Thankfully those hundreds of things DID go right @GayleKing! 😀 and next week we get to see the rewards. My@CBSNewss@CBSMorningss interview about#JWSTT from a couple days before launch!youtube.com/watch?v=wSdOir…p
ONE WEEK until #JWST first images!! 😱 Want a primer on why the telescope looks the way it does (and watch@JossFongg & me build a model together)? Check it out, via@voxdotcommyoutube.com/watch?v=I2GhFS…K
On July 4th, I celebrate our country by supporting democracy - the right to vote, the peaceful transfer of power, opposing authoritarianism. It’s a shame these are now controversial. It’s also ridiculous to proclaim you love our country when you undermine our democracy.

Of course they ARE playing again in Prague on July 22....the week AFTER the big reveal... 🤔🤔#pearljamjam
