Scientists and engineers from three space agencies worked for 20 years to complete the $10 billion telescope, which is designed to see objects using light that is invisible to the human eye. “We’re looking back more than 13 billion years…and we’re going further…this is just the first picture and since we know the deepest view of universe is 13.8 billion years old, we’re going back almost to the beginning.” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said. “It’s going to be so precise that you’re going to see whether planets are habitable or not. And when you look at something as big as this, we’ll be able to answer questions that we don’t even know what the questions are.” are still.”
The image released last night shows a galaxy cluster called SMACS 0723 and is the first of several to be revealed in the coming days. It is the furthest humanity has ever seen in both time and distance, closer to the dawn of time and the edge of the universe, and part of the image shows light shortly after the Big Bang. JWST isn’t just an upgrade to the 32-year-old Hubble Space Telescope. It’s a whole new way of looking at the universe. The telescope’s light-gathering capacity, the best measure of its power to “see” things, is more than twice that of Hubble. In addition, the £8.4bn ($10bn) machine is designed to having deepest view objects using infrared light.
Although invisible to the human eye, infrared is the color of the oldest and faintest objects in the universe. Scientists and engineers from three space agencies (NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency) worked for 20 years to complete the telescope to have a deepest view.
