The James Webb Space Telescope above still blows minds

The James Webb Space Telescope has spent more than a year delving into the universe. Perched a million miles from Earth, it is constantly gathering data from the edge of the universe and sending back the most detailed images of space.

Launched from Earth on December 25, 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is the largest and most advanced space telescope ever built. Its mirrors can collect 6.5 times as much light as the Hubble Space Telescope (Hubble is still doing very well after more than 30 years in space). Unlike Hubble, the James Webb Space Telescope can also detect fainter energy by seeing in infrared wavelengths, which is light that is invisible to the eye.

Here’s a look at some of the amazing photos that were recently released.
