Hubble/Webb Side-by-Side of Dimorphos Ejecta

Webb and Hubble space telescopes capture detailed views of asteroid impact DART

These images, Hubble on the left and Webb on the right, show observations of the Didymos-Dimorphos system several hours after NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) intentionally crashed into the lunar asteroid. It was the world’s first test of the kinetic impact technique using a spacecraft to deflect an asteroid by altering its orbit. Webb …

See the first images of Webb’s asteroid strike, Hubble Telescopes

The images showed a vast cloud of dust extending out of Dimorphos. Paris: The James Webb and Hubble telescopes revealed their first images on Thursday of a spacecraft deliberately crashing into an asteroid, as astronomers said the impact appears to have been much larger than expected. Telescopes around the world turned their gaze to the …

Astronomers may be wrong about Webb Space Telescope’s exoplanet measurements

Astronomers may be misinterpreting measurements of exoplanetary atmospheres from the James Webb Space Telescope, according to a new study. The James Webb Space Telescopethe most complex space observatory ever built, captures stunning images from the farthest reaches of universe. Must also measurements of chemical compositions stars, galaxies and intriguing nebulae he sees. To interpret this …
