The first five images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful space telescope ever, were released by NASA on Tuesday. Astronomers worldwide have been fascinated by these images, which have been created by observing infrared waves, from the birth of stars to the stages of death, the existence of water in the outer galaxy (galaxy), the planetary atmosphere in the outer solar system.
Launched on December 25 last year, the James Webb Telescope was launched 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. In the last few days, the search for the Telescope began with the gradual operation of the telescope system. The first five images, created using information obtained by the Telescope in a matter of hours, were released by NASA on Tuesday.
The first image captured by 'James Webb' was released on Tuesday morning at the hands of US President Joe Biden, according to Indian Standard Time. Thousands of galaxies from 4.6 billion years ago appeared to the world in a single image made by collecting light in about one and a half hours. NASA said the image also led to the discovery of the most obscure galaxy ever seen.
The grand event, organized by NASA on Tuesday evening, brought together online space research institutes worldwide, including the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The release of the first images captured by the James Web Telescope was also shown live in Times Square in New York. NASA's James Webb released four images captured on Tuesday night, Indian Standard Time.
What's in the first images?
- The existence of water in the outer solar system 'Wasp 96B' was proved by the spectrum of the planet's atmosphere.
- The Southern Ring Nebula was the first to have a clear view of the air and dust clouds around the dead star in the center of the space cloud.
Stephens Quintet's first interaction between three galaxy clusters came to light in detail. In this image, astronomers can study the movement of gases in a galaxy under the influence of a black hole and the favorable conditions for the formation of stars in a galaxy under the influence of other galaxies.
-Jarina Webb's picture of the Carina Nebula, a space cloud, reveals favorable regions before new stars are formed.
