We finally know what stuff James Webb has photographed and what we’ll see next Tuesday. It’s a great list!
We’re only days away when NASA releases the first color images from the James Webb Telescope. We don’t know much about the images yet, other than that, according to the US space agency, “they’re definitely going to be a hit.” Yesterday we arrived See already first taste†
Now the European Space Agency reveals Who has been blocking James Webb in his sight lately And where we can see the color images, namely:
– The Karina Nebula. This nebula Photographed in 2010 by the Hubble telescope† It is one of the largest and brightest nebulae visible from Earth’s surface. Many stars are born in this nebula. The Carina Nebula is 7,600 light-years away from Earth.
– WASP-96b spectrum. This is a large exoplanet, or a planet outside our solar system. WASP-96b is located 1,150 light-years from Earth and orbits its parent star every 3.4 days. JU WASP-96b Completely cloud free This is very rare.
– NGC 3132 or so-called Southern Ring Nebula† This is a planetary nebula in the constellation Sailing. The nebula is 2,000 light years from Earth. A planetary nebula is a growing cloud of gas around a dying star. The nebula is half a light year in diameter.
– Stephan quintet is group of galaxies 290 million light years from Earth. This group appears to consist of five galaxies, but it was later revealed that one of the galaxies – NGC 7320 – is much closer to Earth than the other members. In fact, it is a quad.
– The last object is SMACS 0723. This is the galaxy cluster. This cluster forms a cosmic lens, amplifying light from distant and faint background galaxies.
Three more nights of sleep and then we’ll see these pictures and decades later we’ll finally get a good picture of the capabilities and capabilities of the Hubble telescope’s spiritual successor.
