The first image from the James Webb Space Telescope took less than a day to capture, and it’s the deepest infrared view of the universe we’ve ever seen. President Joe Biden revealed the long-awaited image, known as Webb’s First Deep Field, on Monday. It offers a look deep into a patch of sky that, when viewed from Earth, is as tiny as a grain of sand held at arm’s length.
… The image reveals thousands of newly-discovered galaxies whose light was too faint for previous telescopes to detect. They’re among the oldest and most distant objects in our universe, and studying them (and other galaxies like them) in more detail will be a crucial part of the Webb Telescope’s science mission.
