A deep picture of the universe

The first image, from Monday, reveals galaxies that formed 13 billion years ago. It shows the Galaxy cluster SMACS 0723. This is the picture “The most accurate and farthest ever obtained. It represents an area of ​​the sky equal to the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length.”, The National Center for Space Exploration explained on Twitter.

Carina Nebula: Stellar Nursery

An image released Tuesday shows a spot in the Carina Nebula, located about 7,600 light-years away. “Beauty hurts your eyes”Comments by Eric Lagatec, astrophysicist at the Côte d’Azur Observatory and president of the French Society for Astronomy and Astrophysics. “What we see here is the foam of the waves of the interstellar garment that dances.”, Astrophysicist David Elbas sums it up.

A dying star

James Webb captured the Southern Ring Nebula. It is a dying star, a double star, that is ejecting gas and dust. The image on the left was taken by James Webb’s NIRCam instrument. On the right is another tool called MIRI, which is at James Webb. “We see the birth of complex molecules in the practically dead body of a star, the first step toward complexity, toward life.”, Astrophysicist David Elbas commented to CNES.

Group of Galaxies: The Stephens Quintet

Another image shows Stephen’s Quintet, a collection of galaxies. A total of five are visible in this spectacular film, four of which interact in a real gravity dance. The two merge.

Traces of water on an exoplanet

It’s not necessarily the prettiest picture, but it makes you dream. Light analysis of exoplanet WASP-96b’s atmosphere shows traces of water. Note that this does not mean that the planet is home to or habitable for any kind of life. But scientists are carefully studying exoplanets that show traces of water.
