The first photograph taken by the James Webb telescope shows thousands of distant galaxies in full color
Thanks to this telescope we can enjoy the deepest infrared image of the Universe
Science and research continue to have no limits, and more so if we refer to the universe itself, where the infinity of existing universes to know is incalculable, and has been one of the most exciting goals of humanity.
For several decades now, human beings have not stopped try to know as much as you can about everything around us outside the Earth, and that continues to be one of our greatest concerns today, especially about a possible extraterrestrial life.
Thanks to the new James Webb telescope, owned by NASA, we have been able to obtain a color infrared image, which has become, and to this day, the deepest image of the Universe.
The incredibly detailed image shows a deep view of some of the most distant galaxies seen from Earth. where it reveals the power of this telescope and that serves as a preview for even more impressive images of the Universe that are yet to come.
This is the first image of many that NASA wants to show this week, to celebrate the start of science operations with the James Webb Space Telescope.
US President Joe Biden and NASA Administrator Bill Nelson released the first photo this afternoon during a special late-night briefing at the White House.
As the spectacular image shared in this article demonstrates, this powerful telescope promises to revolutionize astrophysics as we know it. Featuring the largest mirror ever sent into space, JWST allows us to peer deep into the Universe’s past by collecting light from some of the stars and galaxies that formed just after the Big Bang.
This image is actually a composite. It combines images made up of multiple wavelengths of light, which were collected by the James Webb telescope for a total of 12.5 hours. Some of the deepest images of the Universe that Hubble has taken have required weeks to image, according to NASA.
As we have already mentioned, this photo is just a preview. The rest of the images will be published tomorrow by NASA during a pre-planned press event.
These graphic files that NASA intends to release will show us impressive nebulae, galaxies and the decay of light in the atmosphere of a planet outside our Solar System.
