Amazing views of the Universe captured by the James Webb Space TelescopeJuly 19, 2022
The James Webb Space Telescope may well be mankind’s greatest feat (so far). This is a magnificent space telescope that was originally initially designed and planned back in the late 1990s but wasn’t completed and launched until the end of 2021.
Now sitting at 930,000 miles beyond Earth’s orbit, the massive telescope is gathering data using its light collection tech which measures 25 square meters and is made up of 18 hexagonal mirrors crafted from gold-plated beryllium.
The idea is to give scientists the ability to study the history of the universe and explore distant worlds and stars that we could not observe before. Now some of the first images have been revealed and the results are staggering.
