The images show nebulae (giant clouds of dust and gas swirling in space), a group of galaxies and a group of five galaxies about 290 million light-years away.
But what does each super telescope image reveal? To understand this, the g 1 Talk to the experts and create infographics detailing the four stunning images and a comparison of the same recordings made by the famous Hubble Telescope.
This was the first color image released by the James Webb Space Telescope.
according to NASAImage Deepest and most accurate infrared view of the universe to date. In it, it is possible to see a group of galaxies called SMEX 0723just as it was about 4.6 billion years ago.

The Southern Ring Nebula, also known as the “Eight-Burst” nebula, was not chosen for nothing by Webb’s team.
“Looking at this nebula is like looking at the future of the sun. The sun will turn into a planetary nebula [uma nuvem de gás em expansão que cerca uma estrela no fim de sua vida] Like this,” says astrophysicist Rogimar Revell, of the Federal University of Santa Maria.
According to NASA, two cameras aboard Webb captured the latest image of this nebula located about 2,000 light-years from Earth. For the first time, due to the high level of detail in this image, Webb was able to reveal that the star was covered in dust.

Rivel says that the Carina Nebula, sometimes called the Eta Carinae Nebula, is the “reverse” of the Southern Ring: It is a star forming region.
According to the US Space Agency, this is one of the largest and brightest nebulae in space, located about 7,600 light-years away in the southern constellation of Carina.
Stephan’s Quintet is a group of five galaxies (NGC7317, 7318A, 7318B, 7319 and 7320), the first of its kind to be discovered. It was first described by the French astronomer Edouard Stephan, in 1877.
Located About 290 million light-years from Earthin the constellation Pegasus, the pentagram is an object all too familiar to amateur astronomers, according to NASA.
