The first photo of the James Webb Space Telescope was released on Monday.
It shows the universe at an unprecedented resolution. This is a major advance in the Hubble Telescope 32 years ago.
As James Webb continues to record deep space, more spectacular photographs may follow.
NASA is the first A series of images Taken by new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) on monday.
The new image provides an unprecedented deep space look. This is a surprising improvement over similar images taken with its predecessor, the Hubble Space Telescope.
JWST Released on December 25, 2021..It’s 6 times bigger and 100 times more powerful Hubble was launched in 1990, 32 years ago.
The images released on Monday show a vast space, and JWST is much more detailed than Hubble.
I took a picture with a near-infrared sensor that captures a spectrum different from that of a conventional camera. Not only do you get better results than Hubble, JWST runs faster. Hubble took weeks to scan images of deep space, JWST covered the same area in 12 hours and 30 minutes.
Zoom in to make the comparison even clearer. The image below compares the Hubble and JWST renderings of a cluster of galaxies called SMAC0723, which appeared about 4.6 billion years ago.
The huge time frame is the result of the distance it takes for light to travel from deep space to a telescope orbiting the earth.
This spatial region is of particular interest to astronomers, as the gravitational pull of the galaxy distorts the light of the farther galaxies behind it. This is a phenomenon known as gravitational lenses.
An example of light distorted by a galaxy can be seen below:
Cosmologist Katie Mack The video below details the gravitational lens.
JWST aims to explore the deep universe more deeply than ever before. That power helps fill the mysterious gap in the history of the universe — the first 400 million years after the Big Bang, By Insider’s Morgan McFall-Johnsen.
this We are also looking for planets that can host life outside our solar system.
MAccording to NASA, JWST’s ore photos will be released shortly.
The following pictures will look at these zones:
Carina Nebula: One of the largest and brightest nebulae in the sky, about 7,600 light-years away, a stellar nursery where stars form.
WASP-96 b (spectrum): WASP-96 b is a giant planet outside the solar system that is mainly composed of gas.
Southern Ring Nebula: An expanding gas cloud that surrounds a dying star about 2,000 light-years away from Earth.
Stephan’s Quintet: Located in Pegasus, it is the first compact galaxy group discovered in 1877, about 290 million light-years away.
