James Webb Space Telescope shared the first deepest and sharpest infrared full-color image of the universe ever recorded. This image covers a patch of sky the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length. It is a small piece of the vast universe,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “This mission was made possible by human ingenuity – the incredible NASA Webb team and our international partners at the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency. The web is just the beginning of what we can achieve in the future when we work together for the benefit of humanity.
James Webb Space Telescope First Image
1. Cosmic Cliffs, Glittering Landscape of Star Birth
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope reveals emerging stellar nurseries and individual stars in the Carina Nebula that were previously obscure
2. Details of galaxy group “Stephan’s Quintet”
Telescope revealed never-before-seen details of the galaxy cluster “Stephen’s Quintet”.
The proximity of Stephen’s quintet gives astronomers a ringside seat to galactic mergers and interactions. Webb’s new image shows in rare detail how interacting galaxies trigger star formation in each other and how gas is being disturbed in the galaxies.
3. Southern Ring planetary nebula
The James Webb Space Telescope has revealed details of the Southern Ring planetary nebula previously hidden from astronomers. Planetary nebulae are balls of gas and dust emanating from dying stars.
4. Webb’s First Deep Field – Galaxy cluster SMACS 0723
President Joe Biden unveiled this image of Webb’s first deep field galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 during a White House event on Monday, July 11. This image reveals thousands of galaxies in one tiny piece of the vast universe.
