NASA reveals Webb Telescope’s first images of unseen universe

Published

NASA partnered with European space agency and Canadian Space Agency, released the full set of the first full color images and spectroscopic data from the JWST (James Webb Space Telescope). 

The data were released during a televised broadcast at 10:30 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 12 2022, from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The landscape of mountains and valley like speckle with glittering stars is actually edge of a nearby young star-forming region called NGC 3324.

The cavernous area has been garnished from the nebula by intense radiation and stellar winds from extremely hot and massive young stars located at the centre of bubble, above the area of gaseous cavity.

A group of five galaxies with sweeping tails of gas, dust and stars are pulled from several galaxies due to gravitational interactions. This is best known for being prominently featured in the holiday classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The dimmer star at the center of this scene has been sending out rings of gas and dust for thousands of years. Located approximately 2500 light years away, this planetary nebula is categorized as NGC 3132.

Webb will allow digging deeper for the answers about the composition of material present around the corpse of a dying star.

The Webb has captured signature of water, along with the evidence of clouds and haze in the atmosphere surrounding a hot, puffy gas giant planet orbiting a sun-like star. 

The deepest and the sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. Known as Webb’s First Deep Field, this image of galaxy cluster is taken far away from about 4 billion light years.

Numerous galaxies can be observed in this slice, but it only covers a patch of sky approximately the size of grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on ground. 

All these images are selected by an international committee of representatives from NASA, ESA, CSA and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
