Geez...:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Jokes aside, it sounds fairly normal to me for every such ambitious missions, including the Artemis 1 demo mission. I also wish to add a picture of Ariane 5 taking off with JWST at the same wall where I have pictures of Atlas V, Falcon 9 and the JWST itself.

It's a good thing the James Webb isn't a christmass present for my son. If I were to tell him yesterday that he wouldn't be getting it today but a day later, the resulting cataclysm might have erased christmass from history...

Final stage of launch, now the interesting stuff comes. I think I can breathe again when the solar array is generating power.
