Interstellar Time Travel

NASA isn't just the shuttle and the International Space Station.  As I've said many times before, NASA is working on technologies that most people don't know a thing about.  They have an entire page on their website that details CURRENT missions, and the list tops out at a whopping 99!  The list of future missions isn't quite as long, but the projects listed are truly notable.  One that has gotten a lot of press in the past (it isn't exactly new news, but it's new to this blog) is the James Webb Telescope.  In fact, the James Webb Telescope will be heading to JSC in the near future for testing in our one-of-a-kind, largest in the world vacuum chamber (the same one the lunar landers were tested in!).  In the interest of showing you how NASA truly Increases the Awesome, I wanted to show you a video by my favorite vlogger detailing just how incredible this new pieces of technology will be, letting us see billions of years into our past and the formation of our universe...
