James Webb Space Telescope Unveiling

View the LATEST released photos from the James Webb Telescope on 7/12/2022

Today I witnessed an epochal moment for humankind. The James Webb Space Telescope (the most powerful space telescope ever launched) released its anticipated full-spectrum photographs to the inhabitants of Earth. Images that go beyond any previous imagination or aesthetic with their luminous detail. It’s like humans just got an ocular upgrade! Get ready, because these are just some of the 1st images Webb has released and were taken only THIS WEEK. Consider your eye “scales” removed.

Webb is currently at its observing spot, Lagrange point 2 (L2), nearly 1 million miles (1.6 million km) away from Earth.

Webb’s First Deep Field (NIRCam Image) 

Thousands of galaxies flood this near-infrared image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723. High-resolution imaging from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope combined with a natural effect known as gravitational lensing made this finely detailed image possible.
