NASA is set to launch the large infrared James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) touted as the “premier observatory” of the coming decade in November this year. But before the launch, NASA has a decision to make on whether it has to rename the $8.8 billion telescope after an LGBT debate has sparked surrounding the JWST.  In a petition, 4 astronomers have asked for a change in the name after they claimed that James Webb, after whom the telescope is named, had persecuted homosexuals when he had worked for the government. Watch this video to know more.
