yeah, I was thinking the same. Constellation Urine 🤭
there were some... you know "we're venting something into space" moment and there's no any comment so I brace for a disaster :cry:
but then comments continue... turns out it was a false alarm 🤗 sigh

That was a great launch, let's hope everything else will work equally well. Can't wait first images...

Yeah, I saw that too, some particles flying away form JWST after solar array deployment. Any ideas what they were ?

Could be restraints for the solar arrays during launch. Since it the probe is going to the edge of the gravity well, there is less reason to keep them attached to the satellite, like usual now for orbital launches.

the main thing is that it does not collide with the Spektr-RG telescope at the L2 point. otherwise the world will be left without space telescopes

As promised, I have added the image of Ariane 5 in my wall collage of spaceflight images.

Hello boys, long time no see. Returned to the forum because of JWSP excitement! What do you think about the possibility of finding evidence for photosynthetic life being present on other planets?
