Breakthrough of the Year is JWST
Amazing video to watch on this.
Science's Breakthrough of the Year for 2022 is the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). We have a ton of great coverage on this here. All of the coverage is outstanding, but this video is truly special. Great work by Kevin McClean and Megan Cantwell on our visuals team putting this together. It’s worth your time to take a look.
Here’s my editorial on the matter, as well. I disagree with NASA’s decision not to rename the telescope after controversy emerged around James Webb. The space program is a source of both science and inspiration — and that inspiration should apply to all.
