NASA releases more photos from James Webb telescope

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released on Tuesday more full-colour images of space taken from the James Webb Space Telescope, with the first telescope’s photo published yesterday. The photos were referred to as ”the deepest and sharpest infrared” images of the distant universe to date and have been taken in partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency). NASA’s latest photo (above) represents the Southern Ring Nebula, the space administration’s Twitter account read.

“NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured the distinct signature of water, along with evidence for clouds and haze, in the atmosphere surrounding a hot, puffy gas giant planet orbiting a distant Sun-like star,” the administration also noted, adding it has previously managed to capture traces of water back in 2013 but not in this resolution. This is a ”giant leap forward in the quest to characterize potentially habitable planets beyond Earth,” NASA highlighted.
