Latest update from the James Webb Space Telescope.

## April 1, 2022

James Webb Update 1/4/2022

The telescope is now in the process of Webb is Cooling and Aligning Mirrors.

Lets discuss more at the next Paignton Library STEM group meeting.

I have added a link to a discourse discussion [3] Along with a link to my Tuxiversity forum to discuss Astronomy / Science related courses. [4].

The JWST mission could be a good topic at the Paignton Library STEM group [5] on 9th April.

James Webb Update 16/1/2022

The JWST is fully deployed, at time of writing this it is 89 percent of the way to its L2 destination.

Mirror segment deployment is now in progress, this can be tracked via the link below.

James Webb Launch 11/1/2022

The JWST launched on Christmas day 2021. The Launch and full deployment has gone as planned. Now starts the process of calibration and other tests etc before the science can start.

You can find out a lot more about this mission at [1] and there is a tracker at [2] with live updates. The next month is the crucial part of the mission with full deployment. So watch this space for updates.

Earth-like biospheres on other planets may be rare

This is an interesting article on Science Daily. Seems that the conditions on Earth could be far rarer than we think. [1] So we are looking for Earth Like atmospheres, the JWST will really help push this research forward.

Please feel free to discuss further on discourse [2]l. I have also included a link to a infographc, on atmosphere composition in our own solar system [3]

Comment and questions on this.

I just wondered what the range of conditions could support life, for example is there a minimum and corresponding percentage range for Oxygen for example. The same would go for other gasses for example Nitrogen, $CO_2$ etc. Hopefully we can learn more about what is needed for life, so we perhaps increase our chances of finding possible habitable words. This, of course is assuming all life requires Oxygen We have found life in or near volcanoes on Earth, conditions are very hot, and inhospitable to humans generally, not to mention the Sulfur Dioxide and other toxic gasses.

I will try and look in to this further.
