facebook page, the next vote for the fate of the James Webb Space Telescope has been tentatively scheduled for September 14th 2011 in the United States Senate (check this link for details). Instead of dealing with the US House Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science we are dealing with the US Senate version of that same subcommittee.
While this is not a vote with the full House or the full Senate, this new vote is still vital to our efforts to save JWST. If we succeed in getting a positive vote now, it means the James Webb Space Telescope has a real chance to fly. Our plan is to get the word out to all of the JWST supporters and to have as many of you contacting Senators as possible. Together, we will be heard!

And especially if you have already contacted your reps, then CONTACT THEM AGAIN.
If you are unaware of who your senators are, the click on this link to find out. If you need talking points, then read this fantastic summary about JWST (be sure to check out the MYTHS section!).
In addition to contacting your own Senators, send emails, faxes and phone calls to actual US Senate Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science. You will find their contact information below:
We can do this, Science Warriors. Check with the facebook page for updates
