The first images from the James Webb Telescope are eagerly awaited on July 12. The space agencies ESA and NASA revealed the five targets that the telescope was initially targeting.
subordinate The Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) It’s about 7600 light years away from the earth. He is in the constellation keel It is one of the largest and brightest nebulae in the night sky.
It is one of the biggest H-II . areas (The name arose due to the large amount of hydrogen H2). There are many new stars forming. Also, in this region are some of the largest and most famous stars known. Could you 10 times hotter And the 100 times the magnitude Be like our sun.
extrasolar planet WASP-96b gas giant 1150 light years away from the earth. for him clear weather Rich in sodium. everybody 3.4 days It revolves around its central star.
The planet was discovered about half the mass of Jupiter 2014. For this transit method used. When observing the central star, the smallest deviations in brightness are observed, which indicate the presence of a planet orbiting around it.
The addition of space agencies that a spectrum has been created here indicates that there will be no image of the actual planet. Instead, here is one Spectroscopy Made, probably with machine NIR. This allows more about texture and Atmosphere composition An exoplanet can be found.
Southern Ring Nebula
Like the Carina Nebula, the Annular Nebula is located in the southern sky. It is about 2,000 light-years away in the constellation of Ship Sails. A dying star is surrounded by a planetary nebula.
The gas cloud spreads at a speed of 15 km/s. Approaching half a light year.
This heavenly scene is a kind of dance 5 galaxies: NGC 7317, NGC 7318A, NGC 7318B, NGC 7319 And the NGC 7320C. It is the first group of galaxies ever found.
The mutual gravitational pull of 4 out of 5 galaxies causes them to warp. It is assumed that they will merge in the future.
The cluster of galaxies is located approx 290 million light years Far in a constellation winged horse.
The least known destination is that Galaxy SMACS 0723 collectionor what lies behind it. She worries through Gravitational lens effect Zoom in on objects in the background.
In this way, it allows only very distant and dimly lit objects to be viewed.
Eagerly waiting for the first pictures
These first photos will be posted on July 12 4:30pm CEST Introduced to the public for the first time. Futurezone will accompany the event with a live tape. The event can be broadcast on NASA YouTube channel and above ESA WEB . TV are being tracked.
