EPISODE 59 Günther Hasinger, the James Webb Space Telescope and surprising confessions of an ESA director

Even seasoned ESA directors have emotions when it comes to groundbreaking moments like the launch and commissioning of the James Webb Space Telescope. ESA's Director of Science, Günther Hasinger, speaks candidly about the brand-new eye in the sky, plunging down a rabbit hole of wonder at what this new piece of technology will bring in the months and years ahead. His reaction after seeing the first images, however, was surprising though.
