The James Webb Space Telescope NASA Produced the deepest and most accurate infrared image of the distant universe to date. It shows details of galaxies that were not previously visible to anyone.
This Monday, President of the United States, Joe BidenThe image of the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 has been releasedknown as Webb’s First Deep Field, during an event at the White House.
The space telescope image extends over a patch of sky that, to an Earth-observer, is the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length, and shows thousands of galaxies far away.
“This profound realm, taken with infrared camera (NIRCam) from Webb, is a composite image consisting of images of different wavelengths, with a total of 12.5 hours of exposure, reaching deeper at infrared wavelengths than those in deeper fields. Hubble Space Telescopethat has been going on for weeks,” NASA explained in a statement.
The image released by NASA shows a file Galaxy Cluster SMACS 0723 They also looked 4.6 billion years ago. “The combined mass of this galaxy cluster acts as a gravitational lens, magnifying the distant galaxies behind them.”
Thanks to the telescope’s NIRCam camera, I was able to focus clearly on distant galaxies as experts identified a series of small and faint structures, which had never been seen before, including star clusters.
With that said, the scientific community should learn more about the mass, age, history and composition of these galaxies as Webb searches for the oldest galaxies in the universe.
Finally, the agency said it will release the full image series on Tuesday, July 12, at 10:30 a.m., during a live broadcast on NASA TV.
