6. Oooo, exciting. And nail biting. What will we see!?!?!

Ah, I wondered if that was the mutli element hexagon
mirror structure I'd seen off and and on. W00000t!

I'd forgotten it was a infrared telescope. Interesting.

What's the advantage in using infrared vs visible light
in this case? Do the scientists think that when they
look further (and back in time) that infrared will give them more of the kind of information they're looking for?
