Astronomers have expressed frustration that the James Webb telescope hasn't produced fantastic images for days. 'Just a lot of dark sky with bright spots randomly spread across it,' said one astronomer. 'It's just like looking at the night sky,' said another.
The telescope promised to bring new, fantastic images from deep space, but astronomers have concluded that space looks 'pretty much the same' no matter how deep you look. 'We had a spot of excitement yesterday when we saw something really different, but it turned out to be a fly on the monitor,' said a research scientist today. Another got really worked up over an image print-out, but realised the printer cartridge needed changing.
'Stuff downloading mega-sized files to convert into boring nightscapes,' said a top scientist, 'I'm just going to lie on my back in the garden tonight with a cheeky zinfandel at my side and hope it doesn't rain.'
