NASA reveals Webb space telescope’s first full-color images for the audiences globally

NASA revealed billions of years of cosmic evolution with the inaugural batch of photos from the largest, most potent observatory launched into space.

The first high-resolution, full-color pictures from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), designed to peer further than ever before with better clarity to the dawn of the universe, were hailed by NASA as a milestone marking a new era of astronomical exploration.

The James Webb Space Telescope, finely tuned after months spent remotely calibrating its instruments and aligning its mirrors, scientists will embark on a competitively selected agenda exploring the evolution of galaxies, atmospheres of distant exoplanets, the life cycle of stars, and moons of our solar system.

Among a panel of experts who briefed reporters following the big reveal, Webb deputy project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Maryland, Amber Straughn, said that all of them were blown away by the quality of images captured by the JWST.

The crowning debut image was a “deep field” photo of a distant galaxy cluster, SMACS 0723, showcasing the most detailed glimpse of the early universe recorded to date.

The four other images getting their close-ups are the Carina Nebula and the Southern Ring Nebula, each thousands of light-years away from Earth, a galaxy cluster known as Stephan’s Quintet, and Webb’s first spectrographic analysis of a Jupiter-sized exoplanet more than 1,100 light-years away.
