How difficult will it be for this telescope to remain at the Lagrangian2 Sun-Earth position? When will it be no longer sustainable to be at the L2 point? I heard it's like trying to balance a marble on a horse saddle.

Also, how worried are you about solar radiation at this location, and what steps are being taken to protect the telescope?

Will Moore's Law breakdown at some point? In terms of tunneling in the semiconductors? Or will silicon be replaced with something else? If so, what do you foresee it being replaced with?

Thanks for the AMA!

Hmmm looks like temp needs to be around 10-15 Kelvin at just about any pressure for solid hydrogen. YAY phase diagrams!
