James Webb Telescope Captures 'Knot' of Galaxies in the Early Universe

By Aazam

In addition to demonstrating that the galaxies were orbiting one another quickly, the telescope's near-infrared spectrograph also revealed that this was one of the most densely populated regions of early galaxy formation

Dominika Wylezalek, the lead researcher, hypothesized that the exceptionally high density might possibly be the result of two halos of dark matter merging nearby

The gas falling into a supermassive black hole at the center of their galaxies powers these objects, which behave as active galactic nuclei

We need to learn more about how galaxy clusters like these evolve and how supermassive black holes affect them

The scientists pointed out that according to Hubble data, there may yet be other galaxies revolving around the quasar

This study is the first in a trilogy that uses Webb to study quasars at various periods in the history of the universe

The Eagle Nebula's Pillars of Creation, a star-forming nursery located there, has been studied by researchers in great detail

When Hubble initially captured an image of the Pillars of Creation in 1995, the available technology could only see a small portion of the stars in the area
