Finally the first image of the Webb telescope arrived, which everyone was eagerly waiting for, and the universe observations have begun with the first image of the webb telescope, the first ever deepest and brightest infrared image of the universe from the webb telescope, Webb took an image of the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 from the deepest region of the universe, full of galaxies. Thousands of galaxies seen in the infrared, including the faintest objects ever seen, appear in Webb’s view for the first time.
Taken by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam), this deep region of the Universe, a composite composed of images of differen Taken by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam), this deep region of the Universe, a composite composed of images of different wavelengths, took weeks to gain depth at infrared wavelengths beyond the darkest regions of the Hubble Space Telescope. It takes time, while webb takes a total of 12.5 hours. This Webb image shows that the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 appeared 4.6 billion years ago, the combined mass of this galaxy cluster acting as a gravitational lens as it magnifies the more distant galaxies behind it .
Webb’s NIRcam has brought into focus galaxies that are far away, appearing only as a blurry image not seen before today. Researchers will soon begin to learn more about the mass, age, history and composition of galaxies, as Webb searches for the oldest galaxies in the universe.
The Webb Telescope is the largest telescope ever built by NASA and ESA, Webb will observe the Universe for the next 10 years, the first galaxy formed in the universe after the Webb Big-Bang and the largest in this 10-year period. Will discover and study the first star formed. Webb can analyze infrared light more effectively than visible light, because JWST’s instruments do not measure visible or ultraviolet like the Hubble telescope, but have the ability to collect large amounts of infrared light.
