    Woke Culture Strikes Again: NASA Needs to Rename the James Webb Space Telescope

    The more people cave to these neo-progressives, the more power & influence they wield.

    Learn. To. Say. No.


    NASA Needs to Rename the James Webb Space Telescope


    The successor to the Hubble honors a man who took part in the effort to purge LGBT people from the federal workforce

    Because of its ability to see more deeply into spacetime than any instrument before it, the Hubble Space Telescope has completely transformed the way we see the universe and ourselves. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), often dubbed “the next Hubble,” promises to do the same. Slated to launch later this year, JWST will peer more deeply into the universe than any optical or infrared telescope before it, promising to show us a vision of galaxies in their infancy and probe potentially habitable worlds. Such data not only provide insight into the universe but also help us humans situate our concerns in context. It is therefore unfortunate that NASA’s current plan is to launch this incredible instrument into space carrying the name of a man whose legacy is at best complicated and, at worst, complicit.

    James Webb, a career civil servant whose time at the Department of State under Truman included advancing the development of psychological warfare as a Cold War tool, was later the NASA administrator who oversaw the Apollo program. When he arrived at NASA in 1961, his leadership role meant he was in part responsible for implementing what was by then federal policy: the purge of LGBT individuals from the workforce. When he was at State, this policy was being carried out by men who worked under Webb. As early as 1950, he was aware of this policy, and there is clear evidence to suggest that he was involved in supporting Senate discussions that ultimately kicked off what is known today as the Lavender Scare.

    Many astronomers feel a debt of gratitude for Webb’s work as NASA administrator. Appreciation and nostalgia for a time that NASA thrived during the Apollo program are understandable as motivations for using the JWST name. But while appreciation and nostalgia might be important motivations, they are not sufficient. While Webb may have played a positive role at NASA, his greater legacy beyond NASA is relevant. Without the knowledge of Webb’s silence at State and his participation in making psychological warfare a tool of the military industrial complex, perhaps our gratitude for his work was sufficient. With that knowledge, we think it is time to rename JWST because the name of such an important mission, which promises to live in the popular and scientific psyche for decades, is a reflection of our values.

    Around 2015, the history of Webb’s complicity with persecution came to light. Although some astronomers reacted at the time, many in the community believed the opportunity to change the telescope’s name had passed. Recently, an astronomer reconstituted this conversation in a personal blog, highlighting the fact that a homophobic quote was misattributed to Webb on his Wikipedia page (click here for the original version of the post. Spurred by this attempt to cleanse Webb’s image, astronomers on social media began to argue that in the absence of this specific quote, Webb was not responsible for homophobic activity.

    But nothing central has changed. Webb was in leadership and in decision-making discussions as the Lavender Scare unfolded. Additional archival evidence, found by Columbia astronomer Adrian Lucy in the aftermath of the blog’s publication with a quick search of the archives, underlines Webb’s role as a facilitator of homophobic policy discussions with members of the Senate.

    As a person in a management position, Webb was ultimately responsible for the policies enacted under his leadership, including homophobic policies that were in place when he later became NASA administrator. Some argue that if Webb was complicit, so was everyone working in the administration at the time. We agree. Thankfully, NASA is not launching a telescope named after the entire administration, and individually its members would be poor choices for the honor for some of the same reasons that Webb is.

    Some might be tempted to see the proposal to rename JWST as litigating decades-old history, but in fact, discrimination against queer people, including scientists, affects the lives and career outcomes of many today and tomorrow.
    In 2016, the American Physical Society released the “LGBT Climate in Physics” report. A core result of the report was that many queer scientists fundamentally do not feel safe in their workplaces. The climate is exclusionary, and physicists with overlapping minoritized identities, including LBGT+ physicists of color, experience the most harassment and exclusion. LGBTQIA+ astro/physicists exist, and are marginalized. A 2021 study published in Science finds similar outcomes.

    This fact is not new but rather a continuation of history that dates back to Webb’s era. Frank Kameny was an astronomer who was hired by the U.S. Army Map Service. When he was unwilling to provide information about his sexual orientation, he was investigated and subsequently fired. His failure to win justice through the courts for gay rights in the military led him to spend the rest of his life as an activist. Though today’s queer liberation organizing encourages us to question our relationship to the U.S. military, Kameny’s case is a clear example of homophobic injustice during the era when Webb was active.

    Stupid **** that's become a mainstream phenomenon with up & coming generations of poorly-educated retards. Retards influenced by teachers & professors who push the kind of social agenda that is being called out in the OP.

    OP left out the best part

    Yet we can certainly name incredible heroes who worked tirelessly to liberate others. Before she became a conductor on the Underground Railroad, a disabled and enslaved Harriet Tubman likely used the North Star, just as Henry Bibb did, to navigate to freedom. Naming “the next Hubble” the Harriet Tubman Space Telescope (HTST) would ensure that her memory lives always in the heavens that gave her and so many others hope. The HTST could also serve as a reminder that the night sky is a shared heritage that belongs to all of humanity, including LGBTQIA+ people. The time for lionizing leaders who chose to be embedded in a history of harm is over. We should name telescopes out of love for those who came before us and led the way to freedom, and those who are coming up after us who should be cherished.

    No but it does pop up in my news feed, and you should care because it's becoming a mainstream trend.

    James Webb died 30 years ago, so I suspect he's rather ambivalent towards the whole thing.
