It’s time to #UnfoldTheUniverse. Watch as the mission team reveals the long-awaited first images from the James Webb Space Telescope. Webb, an international collaboration led by NASA with our partners the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, is the biggest telescope ever launched into space. It will unlock mysteries in our solar system, look beyond to distant worlds around other stars, and probe the mysterious structures and origins of our universe and our place in it. All about Webb: https://webb.nasa.gov
THE FIRST IMAGE
The first images package of materials will highlight the science themes that inspired the mission and will be the focus of its work: the early universe, the evolution of galaxies through time, the lifecycle of stars, and other worlds. All of Webb’s commissioning data – the data taken while aligning the telescope and preparing the instruments – will also be made publicly available.
Join us here at News Views as we see What and When the James Webb will reveal to us. The first shot, which is posted above, is as it appeared 4.6 billion years ago. We’re seeing the what and we’re seeing the when. The word of the day? Perspective.
