The US space agency NASA announced over the weekend that James Webb, the most expensive and advanced telescope ever built by mankind, took the first and farthest image to the depths of the universe. And now, mark in your diary: Saturday, at 5:30 p.m. (Israel time)



In total, this is one of 10 to 20 images that will come from the telescope, senior NASA officials confirmed during a press conference.

According to the publication, for the few scientists who saw a glimpse into photography, the new images were an inspiration for deep existential experiences and left some on the verge of tears.



James Webb was launched in December 2021, and is already at the Lagrange L2 point, a gravitational stable point on the Earth-Sun axis about 1.5 million km from us, which allows it to "hover" in place with minimal investment of fuel.

As the Hubble Space Telescope nears the end of its life and has become our primary evidence for the expansion of the universe, James Webb has been designed and opened specifically for infrared photography - so you can penetrate deeper through gas clouds and nebulae and reach the most distant stars in the universe.



The design and development of James Webb lasted more than 25 years, with an investment of about $ 10 billion.

During its mission, the capabilities of the Space Telescope, the successor to the ancient "Hubble", will enrich our world with further observations of some of the most distant bodies in the universe, which cannot be observed with the existing means in space available to mankind.
