For anyone else as unaware as myself, it's named after the astronomer Nancy Grace Roman, not the horrible TV personality Nancy Grace.

Good to know. I started looking up Roman Space Telescope.

And what the hell is a "Roman Telescope"?

Wouldn’t it be terrible if they named something so scientific after somebody so anti science… lol the Nancy Grace telescope on Fox News …

The Tucker Carlson Center for Climate Science and Immunology.

Tucker, we present to you the Tucker Carlson Center for Warm Weather Smarts and Stopping Yucky Germies.

Tucker, doing his little furrowed brow frowny face: "What is this? A center for ants?"

why not just call it Nancy Roman? Everyone’s gonna think it’s a telescope named after Nancy Grace that was conceptualized and developed in Rome.

Horrible tv personality!?! Sounds like Grace is Under Fire here.


jcpmojo t1_j8q31pj wrote

That was the very nicest way I could describe her; there are many less nice, and more accurate, ways I can think of.


Hydraskull t1_j8q4j04 wrote

I failed at making a joke. Thought her show was called “Grace Under Fire” but that was actually the name of a bad 90s sitcom by a different woman named Grace (not Nancy Grace). I agree with you on Nancy Grace tv lady

For the record, Grace Under Fire starred Brett Butler as a character named Grace.

I was trying to figure out how the TV showed was related. I thought I was missing something.

Thank you lmao I was about to google “wtf does Nancy Grace have to do with telescopes” 😅

I just came to say can we just call it the nancy roman teleacope so we dont have to endure "tot mom" flashbacks


LunchboxRoyale t1_j8rbej8 wrote

I thank you for clarifying-I thought it was named Nancy Grace because of the “dark energy” part xD

is the telescope an angry racist drunk?

you know the stars in that neighborhood are up to no good!

The only thing Nancy Grace should have named after her is a form of torture equivalent to watching her reprehensible show.


jcpmojo t1_j8xjyt9 wrote

Watching her show would be the worst kind of torture. I think it was specifically called out in the Geneva Convention as being too inhumane.


Saintious t1_j8ouiww wrote

That was my first thought.... Poor woman had to live with that name.

“Why should I have to change my name??? She’s the one that sucks!”


Saintious t1_j8tykcl wrote

I agree completely. I'm sure you are awesome. That terrible woman set the bar so low for anyone with your name. Don't change a thing.
