James Webb Telescope reveals the 'Bones' of a Distant Galaxy in Stunning New,,,,

By Aazam

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has recently captured a remarkable image that reveals the unseen gaseous "bone" structure of a far-off galaxy

The spiral galaxy IC 5332, more than 29 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor, is home to the cosmic knot of gas, dust, and stars

Its spiral arms are very clearly visible as it sits almost exactly face-to-face with Earth

The Hubble Space Telescope has previously captured images of a galaxy with a width of 66,000 light-years that is roughly two-thirds the size of our Milky Way galaxy

However, the James Webb Space Telescope can see in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, unlike Hubble

As a result, the restored image includes so many minute elements that it already appears to be a whole new image

Representatives of the European Space Agency (ESA) stated, "Dark areas can be seen in the Hubble image that appear to divide the spiral arms

The site image, however, depicts a continuous maze of buildings that mimic the spiral arms' design

JWST utilized its mid-infrared instrument to take this picture

To eliminate infrared interference effects from other heat sources, a particular camera must be supercooled to - 446.8 degrees Fahrenheit

Another requirement for JWST's ability to detect weak infrared light is its position in the frigid depths of space, far from Eart

he telescope's 21-foot-wide gold-plated mirror, together with its instruments, were finally ready for use after six months of tedious setup and calibration
