Astronomers 'Blown Away' by First Breathtaking Webb Space Telescope Images of Orion Nebula

Astronomers ‘Blown Away’ by First Breathtaking Webb Space Telescope Images of Orion Nebula

The inner region of the Orion Nebula as seen by the James Webb Space Telescope’s NIRCam instrument. This is a composite image from several filters that represent emissions from ionized gas, molecular gas, hydrocarbons, dust, and scattered starlight. Most prominent is the Orion Bar, a wall of dense gas and dust that runs from the …

New photos show the Orion Nebula, a star nursery 1,350 light-years from Earth, in great detail.  Scientists have been waiting on them for 5 years.

New photos show the Orion Nebula, a star nursery 1,350 light-years from Earth, in great detail. Scientists have been waiting on them for 5 years.

Detailed images of the Orion Nebula were captured by the James Webb telescope. Production of the images involved over 100 scientists from 18 countries, according to AFP. The study of the nebula helps researchers better understand the formation of our own solar system. Loading Something is loading. Newly released images captured by the James Webb …
