Webb Telescope: NASA to Reveal Deepest Image Ever Taken of Universe

NASA administrator Bill Nelson said on Wednesday that the agency will reveal the “deepest image of our universe that has ever been taken” on July 12, thanks to the newly operational James Webb Space Telescope. “If you think about that, this is farther than humanity has ever looked before,” Nelson said during a press briefing […]

James Webb Telescope’s First Full Colour Images Said to Come in July

The James Webb Space Telescope will produce “spectacular colour images” of the cosmos in mid-July — its first observations dedicated to its mission of scientific discovery, an astronomer overseeing the project said on Monday. The successor to Hubble has spent the last five months aligning its instruments in preparation for the big reveal, with scientists […]

James Webb Space Telescope Will Help Observe Over 100 Galaxies at a Time

The James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful observatory ever sent to space, is gearing up to begin its science mission this summer. In the run-up to that milestone, work is underway to deploy the many instruments aboard the $10 billion (roughly Rs. 76,165 crore) telescope. One of those instruments is NIRSpec, the Near Infrared […]

Hubble Captures Supermassive Black Hole Hidden Behind Dust

NASA’s Hubble telescope, which helped scientists discover some of the amazing aspects of space, has captured a stunning view of an active black hole covered behind tendrils of dark dust. The black hole lies in the spiral galaxy NGC 7172, located about 110 million light-years away from Earth in the ancient, but small constellation Piscis […]

Wondered How Milky Way Galaxy Would Look From Away?

If something is close to our view, we tend to lose perspective. To have a clear picture, we need to create distance between ourselves and the view. Astronomers know the importance of visual separation far better than anyone else since they keep looking at the vastness of the Universe most of the time. But they […]

Hubble Space Telescope Captures a ‘Wispy Structure’ in Space

Hubble Space Telescope never lets us down when it comes to taking striking images of distant stars, full-fledged galaxies, and other stellar objects. Stunning us once again, the telescope has shared an image of a picturesque phenomenon occurring on a young star. What we see is a jet of gas like no other. NASA and […]

NASA Shares Stunning Image of Interacting Galaxies Captured By Hubble

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stellar image of two interacting galaxies some 200 million light-years away from Earth. The pair is located in the Pegasus constellation, named after a winged horse from Greek mythology. The image shared by NASA on its Instagram page shows a large spiral galaxy (NGC 7469), and its diminutive […]

Hubble Captures Stunning Image of a Triple Galaxy Merger

Hubble Space Telescope, a joint project by NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), has been witnessing mysterious events in the Universe for over three decades. It recently captured a stunning image of a triple galaxy merger in progress some 681 million light-years away from Earth, in the Cancer constellation. The image also shows a tumultuous […]

James Webb Space Telescope: All 18 Mirrors Capture Same Star

The first phase of the James Webb Space Telescope’s months-long process of aligning the observatory’s 18-segmented primary mirror is nearing completion. The initial stage of this technique, known as “Segment Image Identification”, has been completed by engineers. The James Webb Space Telescope, with its 18 primary mirror segments, has now recorded 18 unfocussed images of […]

James Webb Space Telescope Spots Its First Star — and Takes a Selfie

The James Webb Space Telescope has spotted its first star and captured a selfie, NASA announced Friday. The steps are part of the months-long process of aligning the observatory’s enormous golden mirror that astronomers hope will begin unraveling the mysteries of the early Universe by this summer. The first picture sent back of the cosmos is far […]
