The James Webb Space Telescope is in trouble.
In order to bring awareness to the issue of saving the James Webb Space Telescope, our partners over at facebook.com/saveJWST have begun the 4X5 Challenge.
The 4X5 Challenge is this: "Over the next 4 days, we challenge you to get 5 people to write, call, email or meet with their congressional representatives about saving the James Webb Space Telescope. Once you've got your 5 people to contact their reps, then drop by the facebook page and leave the following message:
I'm a Stellar Person. I've got my 5!
We will keep a tally and randomly select two of you stellar people for a cosmically cool prize!
The challenge ends at 11:59pm EDT on Saturday July 23 2011. The winners will be announced on Sunday. Good luck!
As always, Space Warriors, do not forget the 4 steps to saving JWST:
a) Sign the Petition
b) Like the Facebook Page
d) Spread the Word
