The First Image from JWST is ASTOUNDING!

To say I’m amazed at this photo would be an understatement. To say I’m amazed at the work that went into producing the James Webb Space Telescope would also be an understatement. This is the culmination of decades of work and collaboration among the scientists and researchers under the JWST program. And this is only the first image! I can’t wait to see what other exciting discoveries JWST will make in its lifetime.

This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground.

NASA, July 12, 2022

Read ^^^ that ^^^ quote again. Like what!? I love this about our universe (and indeed our world) the more you zoom in on something (either big or small) the more is revealed to you. It feels like a fractal of sorts.

This telescope is the most advanced telescope humanity has and it will let is see further back in time to see when the first stars, blackholes, and galaxies formed. It will answer questions we’ve been asking for a long time. It will answer questions we didn’t even think to ask. And it will have us ask questions we never thought to ask.

Great discoveries are not found by saying “Eureka! I found it!” but rather by saying, “Oh, that’s interesting. I wasn’t expecting that.”
