After having successfully deployed a 70-foot sun shield for its future science operations, the James Webb Telescope team has blocked NASA Sun, NASA Moon and NASA Earth on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Throwing shade at the three NASA accounts, the James Webb Telescope team wrote, “Sorry for the shade, @NASASun, @NASAMoon & @NASAEarth! But you’re just not cool enough.” “Now fully deployed, our sunshield blocks your heat & light so that our mirrors will be able to detect faint heat signals in the universe,” the account wrote further in its tweet.
The tweet made netizens laugh out loud as this was James Webb team’s unique way of showing off its new sun shield that the team deployed.
The sun shield will protect the telescope from the light and heat of the Sun, Earth, and Moon.
The James Webb Telescope’s technology will explore every phase of cosmic history from within our solar system to some of the most distant galaxies in the universe and anything in between, revealing unexpected discoveries to help humanity understand how our world originated.
