You must pretty proud, Chuck! It's wonderful that the wealthiest nation on earth (I think!) spends the money on something as incredible as this rather than just bombs. This stuff is important. Real "makes you feel small" stuff. Mind blown!

If you can make an extra cold air-conditioning work way up in space then my overdrive pedals must be a walk in the park.

Selecting a lubricant that will work for 20 years, in a vacuum, not contaminate optics, and remain slippery at cryogenic temperatures is no easy task.

I went on Penrite's website and tried to select an oil for JWST. Under vehicle type, "Space Telescope" was notably absent.
