Highlights: First Images from the James Webb Space Telescope (Official NASA Video)

NASA revealed the first five full-color images and spectrographic data from the world’s most powerful space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency), and CSA (Canadian Space Agency). The world got its first look at the full capabilities of the mission at a live event streamed from the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on July 12, 2022.

The event showcased these targets:
– Carina Nebula: A landscape speckled with glittering stars and cosmic cliffs
– Stephan’s Quintet: An enormous mosaic with a visual grouping of five galaxies
– Southern Ring Nebula: A nebula with rings of gas and dust for thousands of years in all directions
– WASP 96-b: A distinct signature of water in the atmosphere of an exoplanet orbiting a distant Sun-like star
– SMACS 0723: The deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date
