If you ask me it’s a clever pr campaign, building a cult of personality around a telescope. Lol more realistically though a lot of people do a lot of stuff on the big science projects. Webb is an easier headline, kinda like Hubble rather than which ever list of university departments are cooperating for this particular project.

It also makes it easier to get the next telescope paid for when you can show everything it's done and how the country thinks about it.

I do agree though that more credit should be given to the scientists themselves

So if they don't brag, no one will value their work?

Funny ol' world we got here.
