Have something unique with the 8th photograph of the James Webb Space Telescope printed on Aluminum. It is just gorgeous to see this every day! In this mosaic image stretching 340 light-years across, Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) displays the Tarantula Nebula star-forming region in a new light, including tens of thousands of never-before-seen young stars that were previously shrouded in cosmic dust. The most active region appears to sparkle with massive young stars, appearing pale…
Feast your eyes on the beautiful spiral structure of the Phantom Galaxy, M74, as seen by Webb in the mid-infrared. Delicate filaments of dust and gas wind outwards from the center of the galaxy, which has a ring of star formation around its nucleus.
WFIRST's infrared surveys will create enormous cosmic panoramas. Combining the mission's findings with Hubble's complementary observations could revolutionize our understanding in a multitude of cosmic pursuits.
“🤸 Cartwheeling along… Take a look at these Hubble & Webb views of the Cartwheel Galaxy! In Hubble’s view, the glittering blue regions indicate starbirth. Thanks to @NASAWebb’s infrared vision that cuts through clouds of gas & dust, previously unseen stars are unveiled!”
