"The highest grossing movie from your birth year is how your 2022 will play out." I’m certainly not supporting astrology here, but this does in fact illustrate beautifully the difference between me and @robinince twitter.com/robinince/stat…

Doing some warm up shows for my Horizons world tour in a few weeks with @robinince. Marketing people like you to say ‘only a few tickets left’ etc. to sound good. Leicester, Scunthorpe fine - however there are shit loads left at Stockton Globe Feb 7,8 :-) briancoxlive.co.uk
Here’s a poem called ‘Waiting for Sue Gray’.

Whirlpool Galaxy M51 and the M81/82 pair, Bodes’ and the Cigar Galaxies. Always nice to see them back. (longer exposures, guided, because I had got PHD2 to work by then).

Have you heard the buzz? 🐝 @NASAWebbb’s “honeycomb”-like mirror unfolded and the telescope is fully deployed! Like Hubble, Webb is a reflecting telescope – meaning that it gathers light using huge mirrors rather than lenses. So how do the mirrors on Hubble and Webb compare? ⬇️x

Stephen Hawking was born #OTD in 1942. He developed theorems with Penrose that determine when general relativity produces singularities, established classical laws of black hole mechanics, and theorized that quantum effects make black holes radiate. Image: Santi Visalli/Getty

This is a great photo of #NASAWebb - really does show the scale and ambition of the thing we’ve managed to launch into space - what an achievement. twitter.com/nasawebb/statu…
Two weeks after launch, @NASAWebb has hit its next biggest milestone: the mirrors have completed deployment and the next-generation telescope has taken its final form. Next up for Webb? Five months of alignment and calibration before we start getting images:

Shine bright like a diamond 💎 With the successful deployment of our right sunshield mid-boom, or “arm,” Webb’s sunshield has now taken on its diamond shape in space. Next up: tensioning the 5 sunshield layers!go.nasa.gov/3eVGstLY#UnfoldTheUniverseeN

With the successful extension of #Webb ’s second sunshield 🛡️ mid-boom, the observatory has passed another critical deployment milestone. Webb’s sunshield now resembles its full, kite-shaped form in space. 🪁 (illustration, top view 👇) Detailblogs.nasa.gov/webb/2021/12/3…tF2a

Happy New Year to everyone I follow and to everyone who has been good enough to follow me this past year. I very much enjoy our interactions here (with the exception of the odd nobber obviously) and look forward to many more rational, civilised and enlightening chats in ‘22 :-)

The list of deployment steps over the next few weeks on the link below is fascinating and terrifying in equal measure. What a machine this is - and it exists purely to acquire knowledge about our Universe. twitter.com/nasawebb/statu…
For years, we’ve been answering the question: When will #NASAWebb launch? This morning, we answered that for the last time! Next up: Where is Webb? We’ve got an answer for that, too! See where Webb is on its million mile journey to #UnfoldTheUniverse: webb.nasa.gov/whereiswebb

The James Webb Space Telescope is safely in space, powered on and communicating with ground controllers. Webb continues in coast phase, and is now oriented correctly with respect to the Sun: blogs.nasa.gov/webb/ #UnfoldTheUniverse #NASAWebb

Here it is: humanity’s final look at @NASAWebb as it heads into deep space to answer our biggest questions. Alone in the vastness of space, Webb will soon begin an approximately two-week process to deploy its antennas, mirrors, and sunshield. #UnfoldTheUniverse

#NASAWebb is safely in space with its solar array drawing power from the Sun! Its reaction wheels will keep the spacecraft pointed in the right direction so that its sunshield can protect the telescope from radiation and heat: blogs.nasa.gov/webb/2021/12/2… #UnfoldTheUniverse

Good luck @NASAWebb - certainly one of the most important scientific launch in history. It will be a wonderful Christmas present if all goes to plan, as I’m sure it will! But I know that even the most rational amongst us will have fingers secretly crossed :-) twitter.com/nasa/status/14…
ESA's #MarsExpress is closely tied to the festive season. The spacecraft entered orbit around #Mars on Christmas Day of 2003 🔴 It has since seen many winter wonderlands – including an ice-filled crater resembling a patch of fresh, untrodden snow. �esa.int/Science_Explor…WBr

UPDATE: @NASAWebb completed its Launch Readiness Review & is safe atop its Ariane 5 rocket. However, the weather in French Guiana isn’t looking good. Launch is now no earlier than Dec 25 at 7:20am ET (12:20am UTC). We’ll monitor things & keep you posted. go.nasa.gov/32kNpS9

Is this a sign that the manufacturers of the anti-5G products are in fact anti-anti-5G? But what if the anti-5G people don’t believe the findings about the anti-anti-5G manufactures of anti-5G products and start an anti-anti-anti-5G conspiracy? And so on? twitter.com/davidbflower/s…

@ESO 's VLT imaged the most massive planet-hosting star pair to date, b Centauri. The star pair has total mass of at least 6 solar masses. It's the bright object in top left corner ( rings are optical artifacts). The planet (lower right) is 10 times as massive as Jupiter.
