James Webb Telescope: The Deepest Image in the Universe

Here’s the first image from the telescope that will “answer questions that haven’t been formulated yet.”

Light has been traveling for 13 billion years.

It’s even hard to understand, says President Biden at a press conference with the head of NASA.

According to the head of NASA, this is the deepest image of our universe ever taken.

The image shows a group of galaxies called SMACS 0723 acting as a lens that magnifies distant objects behind them. He writes for the Washington Post.

– Bill Nelson says the light you see from tiny specks has traveled for 13 billion years.

– We will go further. This is just the first picture.

The head of NASA said that the image represented a spot in the sky the size of a grain of sand fixed at arm’s length. This tiny spot contains thousands of galaxies that formed in the infancy of the universe, right after the Big Bang.

A hundred years ago we thought there was only one galaxy. Bill Nelson says we know today that there are billions of galaxies with billions of stars.

– We will be able to answer questions that have not yet been formulated.

New discoveries about the origin of life

On Tuesday, NASA will show more images from the James Webb Telescope, which was launched into space during last year’s Christmas holidays.

The goal is to be able to distinguish light from the first galaxies that formed in the universe and give a more detailed picture of these galaxies, to contribute to understanding how galaxies develop, how stars are born and die, and how planetary systems. arise, writes TT.

In it, they hope for new discoveries about the so-called exoplanets that exist — and, in the long run, about the origin of life.
