A French scientist played a brilliant joke with his followers.
This year, NASA put into service the James Webb Space Telescope, the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, whose high-tech infrared radiation detection technology promises more detailed images of the far reaches of outer space than ever before.
Almost a month ago, we got a glimpse of the first historic photo of the JWST, and since then, NASA more stunning images made public, so the public interested in astronomy is now quite keen on the materials made with space telescopes. Just how much was recently demonstrated by a great joke.
Physicist Etienne Klein, the 64-year-old director of research at France’s Atomic Energy Commission, shared an astonishingly detailed JWST photo of the closest star to the Sun, Proxima Centauri, 4.2 billion light-years away, on Twitter. “This richness of detail…Every day a new world is revealed.” – wrote the scientist, and his followers casually liked and of course retweeted the photo.

But if you look more closely, James Webb’s latest sensation actually shows a sausage ring. Never mind, it’s really beautiful, you could even go with sourdough peasant bread with some freshly picked peppers. Of course, the scientist revealed the ugliness over time and reminded everyone that according to the current state of cosmology, the object in question can only be found here on Earth.
And so that we can learn from what happened, Klein added that we should beware of accepting statements based on authority alone, that is, if something is claimed by a scientist, it is not necessarily true, unless it is verifiably supported.
