NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope Christmas Launch Has Sparked Some Epic Christmas Memes

Update for 8 am EST: NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope successfully launched into space at 7:20 am EST (1220 GMT). Read our full story here.

It is launch day for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, and after months of delays, the mission will blast off on Christmas Day (December 25) in what may be the greatest gift astronomy has ever seen.

The Webb Space Telescope is scheduled to lift off from the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, at 7:20 am EST (1220 GMT). You can view live coverage of the launch here on Space.com, courtesy of NASA TV.

It has been a long way to the launch pad of NASA’s Webb Space Telescope, which has been delayed for months due to technical problems, storms and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Even this week, NASA and its partners were hoping to launch Webb on December 22, with a data cable and weather failure pushing the launch to Christmas.
