\u201c\ud83d\udc40 Sneak a peek at the deepest & sharpest infrared image of the early universe ever taken \u2014 all in a day\u2019s work for the Webb telescope. (Literally, capturing it took less than a day!) This is Webb\u2019s first image released as we begin to #UnfoldTheUniverse: https://t.co/tlougFWg8B\u201d
— NASA Webb Telescope (@NASA Webb Telescope)
The Webb telescope was launched by NASA in collaboration with the ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency) and space enthusiasts are excited.
Cosmologist Rami Mandow put it into perspective with a visual, writing: “How small is the #JWST field in that amazing image?
“We heard ‘like a grain of sand, at arms length’ …. Here’s what that looks like!
“It’s tiny when compared to even some nearby galaxies. Imagine all the sky covered in galaxies!”
