Brother James Webb and his Space Telescope
These are exciting times for Science! For months, astronomy enthusiasts have been excitedly awaiting the release of the first photos from the James Webb Space Telescope. A $10 Billion Dollar project to put the largest and most capable telescope out in Space. There are two primary reasons why every Freemason in the world should be excited about this event. 1. As Masons we are encouraged to study Astronomy (We answer why in this episode) and 2. This telescope was named after Brother James Webb… A Freemason.
