The first image from NASA’s new James Webb Space Telescope was unveiled on July 11th showing the farthest we’ve ever seen in both time and distance. The deep field image shows stars and galaxies. The space telescope, which is the world’s biggest and most powerful, was launched last December, and is considered the successor to the aging Hubble Space Telescope.
It’s here–the deepest, sharpest infrared view of the universe to date: Webb’s First Deep Field.
Previewed by @POTUS on July 11, it shows galaxies once invisible to us. The full set of @NASAWebb‘s first full-color images & data will be revealed July 12: https://t.co/63zxpNDi4I pic.twitter.com/zAr7YoFZ8C
