The James Webb Space Telescope Is Like a Cosmic Time Machine. Here's Why
Space-based telescopes let us see specific ranges of light that are unable to pass through Earth's dense atmosphere. For example, the Hubble space telescope was designed and optimized to use both ultraviolet (UV) and visible parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The JWST was designed to use a broad range of infrared light. And this is a crucial reason the JWST can see further back in time than Hubble.
Perseids: You Need to See the Summer's Best Meteor Shower ASAP
The Perseids have kicked off — with a peak on August 11 and 12.
The Cygnus Loop in Bi-Color
12 hours on the Cygnus Loop / Veil Nebula complex! I used a small refractor telescope and Full-Frame camera combo which allowed me to have the entire Cygnus Loop in a single field of view without having to do a mosaic.
European Probe Snaps Closest-Ever Photo of our Star
The European sun-chasing spacecraft Solar Orbiter has snapped the closest images of the sun ever taken, revealing the finest details of our star's outer atmosphere, the corona.
Feeling the Heat from Space
The current heatwave is too apparent with searing temperatures and a string of record highs being smashed across western Europe. Extreme heat warnings have been issued in several countries, including France, Spain, and Portugal, and deadly wildfires have forced thousands to flee their homes. The satellite images here exemplify how the crisis is being viewed by satellites orbiting Earth.
Software developer John Christensen was disappointed when he saw the first images from the James Webb Telescope. "Without context, it is just a space picture." So he built a web app to show you just how far NASA innovation has come since the Hubble.
The Five Most Profound Films About the Moon
In honor of the next anniversary of the first man landing on the moon, the team of The Universe Space Tech has compiled a selection of the five most remarkable films about the natural satellite of our planet.
Webb's Southern Ring Nebula
Cataloged as NGC 3132, the Southern Ring Nebula is a planetary nebula, the death shroud of a dying sun-like star some 2,500 light-years from Earth. Composed of gas and dust, the stunning cosmic landscape is nearly half a light-year in diameter, explored in unprecedented detail by the James Webb Space Telescope.
