Explore the Universe
Check in on the James Webb Space Telescope!
There’s a lot going on down here on planet Earth, but don’t forget about all that space!
Thanks to the James Webb Space Telescope, we have access to some amazing images that are not only scientifically groundbreaking but can also spark inspiration and wonder.
The Webb is a telescope made to travel through space and send back images of phenomena that are too far away for humans to travel to. Right now, it’s about 940,000 miles from Earth in a region called the second Sun-Earth Lagrange point.
Scientists hope to collect data that will help them learn more about what the early universe was like and how it formed, what happens to stars over their lifecycles, and what other worlds might be out there.
Plus, it takes some pretty amazing shots.
