In a month, the James Webb Space Telescope saw the oldest galaxies, messy cosmic collisions and the atmosphere of a hot gas planet

In the month since the James Webb Space Telescope released its first images, it has captured brand new views of the cosmos. The $10 billion space telescope launched in December 2021 and arrived at its destination beyond the Moon’s orbit in January. Webb is able to cut through cosmic dust, allowing astronomers to see further …

James Webb Space Telescope captures ‘impostor’ galaxies in the act

The dusty star-forming galaxies that existed a billion years after the Big Bang could pass themselves off as the record-breaking galaxies discovered by NASA’s new space telescope and thought to date back to even earlier times. In the weeks since the first batch of science data from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was released, …

Webb Telescope captures colorful Cartwheel galaxy, 500 million light-years away

PARIS, France — The James Webb Space Telescope peered through the weather and massive amounts of dust to capture a new image of the Cartwheel Galaxy, revealing the spinning ring of color with unprecedented clarity, NASA and the European Space Agency. Located about 500 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Sculptor, the wheel took …

The Webb Space Telescope has just imaged another most distant galaxy, breaking its record after a week

The Webb Space Telescope has just imaged another most distant galaxy, breaking its record after a week

Astronomers using the James Webb Space Telescope have spotted what they believe to be the most distant galaxy ever seen – a distant red spot 35 billion light-years away. The galaxy, named CEERS-93316, was photographed as it existed just 235 million years after the big Bangusing Webb’s Near Infrared Camera, which can go back in …
