US president Joe Biden released one of the first images of the universe the James Webb Space Telescope clicked on Monday (local time). The image shows the deepest view of the universe that has never been seen before.
According to the reports, in the image, one can see SMACS 0723 which is a large group of galaxy clusters which act as a magnifying glass for the objects behind them. Using gravitational lensing technology, the Webb telescope created the first deep field view of old, distant and faint galaxies.
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson stated that the image captured by the telescope is the deepest image of the universe that has ever been taken. This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground. Some of the images of these distant galaxies and star clusters were never seen earlier. The galaxy cluster is shown in the picture as it appeared 4.6 billion years ago.
The photo was clicked by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera. The images were clicked at different wavelengths of light over the course of twelve and a half hours and it is faster than the Hubble Space Telescope as its deepest fields took weeks to capture the image.
US president Biden was full of awe following the release. “It’s hard to even fathom,” the US president said while grasping the fact that the Webb telescope is capturing universe imagery from some 13 billion years ago. These images are going to remind the world that America can do big things and remind the American people, especially our children, that there’s nothing beyond our capacity.”
The rest of the high-resolution colour images from the Webb telescope will make their debut on July 12. The Webb space observatory was launched earlier in December last year via an Ariane 5 rocket. The space observatory is orbiting the sun at a distance of 1.6 million kilometres from the Earth from an area in space called the Lagrange point.
