James Webb Space Telescope’s optical setup has been finalized and synchronization has been completed with the scientific instruments on it. After this process, the test images obtained began to appear. When the images, which are very impressive, are compared with the previous infrared telescope images, the difference is seen as mountains. NASA has released images of the sky from both the Spitzer and James Webb Space Telescopes to highlight the difference.
The James Webb Space Telescope is the largest and most powerful telescope ever sent into space. Compared to the Hubble Space Telescope, which is still in operation, and the Spitzer Space Telescope, which was retired a few years ago, it is extremely high in image quality and resolution. This difference is also clearly evident in the image below.
The James Webb Space Telescope looks at the universe through the infrared light range and aims to help astronomers unravel the secrets of the universe. The above comparative image includes Spitzer and James Webb Space Telescope images of the Large Magellanic Nebula, a galaxy orbiting the Milky Way.
The James Webb Space Telescope is still in testing, but NASA officials confirmed yesterday that the first scientific images are expected in mid-July.
