Space is big and scary, and a new video created from data from the Webb Space Telescope shows the vast distances that separate us from the objects we’re trying to observe. In this case, this Galaxy Cartwheelone of the recent goals Webb.
Webb hit us from the first images in full color observatory in July. Earlier this month, NASA and its international partners released an incredible image of the Cartwheel Galaxy, a chaotic structure about 500 million light-years from Earth formed by the collision of two smaller galaxies.
AT The Cartwheel Galaxy is a spectacular testament to impressive optics Webb. But a new video released by the European Space Agency shows that far that this is what things. zoom the cinematography shown here will make you feel really absurdincredibly small.
“Observations on Webb captures Carro de Carro is in a very transitional stage. the way in which will take Galaxy Cartwheelthe these two competing forces remain a mystery. However, this image gives an idea of what happened to the galaxy in the past and what it will do in the future,” the ESA said in a statement. Press release .
AT Galaxy Cartwheel formed when two galaxies collided, “like ripples in a pond after a thrown stone.” describes NASA. They are the inner core is made up of the hot dust and brightest parts of the ring harbor gigantic clusters of young stars. The outer ring has been expanding for the past 440 million years, causing star formation. when the outer ring collides against the gas that surrounds it.
AT Webb is just getting started and maybe for the next 20 years. He will show us the infrared universe as we have never seen it before.
