Gee it's funny there's nothing about it on their website....?

"The Big Bang theory is still on solid ground, despite pseudoscientific attempts to twist JWST's findings"

Maybe 'Future Unity' is engaging in clickbaiting...

Most likely...

Meanwhile, a hybridization of bacon and the terminator is terrorizing the drive-in.

Seriously, what good does it do for CR4, the JWST, and cosmology in general to post this unsubstantiated conjecture based on misunderstandings?

This seems like a better reply/rebuttal:

Thanks, Anton does a good job of explaining.

The "Future Unity" video points out some discrepancies between what JWST has found and what would be expected from the Big Bang Theory and comes to the conclusion that the Big Bang Theory is false. A more logical conclusion would be that some of the parameters of the BB Theory need to be adjusted to make it conform to these findings. There is too much other evidence supporting it.

It's actually a good thing that JWST is coming up with new discoveries. It would be a shame to spend a lot of money on the telescope and not learn anything new.

Yes! Finding curious minor anomalies in any experiment or observation is how Science grows. When the results of an experiment or exploration perfectly coincide with theory then no new Science can be found from the demonstration.

Meanwhile...

..."NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft recently got its first look at Didymos, the double-asteroid system that includes its target, Dimorphos. On Sept. 26, DART will intentionally crash into Dimorphos, the asteroid moonlet of Didymos. While the asteroid poses no threat to Earth, this is the world’s first test of the kinetic impact technique, using a spacecraft to deflect an asteroid for planetary defense."...

We should start a pool of how many thousandth's of a degree will be the result....I say 1 ten thousandth...0001°

...though it might be too loosely bound, like buckshot, so that it takes years for any deviation to actually materialize...

A change in the solar orbital path of this double asteroid system will be hard to detect in the short term. Since the moonlet has an 11.9-hour orbital period around Didymos a change in the orbital path and/or period of Dimorphos should be more quickly quantified.

Target acquired...

"DART will slam into Dimorphos on September 26, which is a minor-planet moon of the asteroid Didymos."
