Interesting talk today on X-ray. I like learning about the history of telescope projects. It reminds me that learning takes time. Time to ask a question you can try to answer, time to build an instrument that can make a measurement that can help you answer your question, time to analyze the measurements and compare them to models. Our country has to be willing to be patient and wait for answers while funding the projects.

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the Parker Solar Probe is lowered into the 40-foot-tall thermal vacuum chamber. The thermal vacuum chamber simulates the harsh conditions that the spacecraft will experience on its journey through space, including near-vacuum conditions and severe hot and cold temperatures.
