The image is the ‘deepest and highest-resolution look at the universe yet’ according to NASA and shows a region of space called SMACS 0723, containing thousands of galaxies, including the ‘faintest objects ever to be observed’ in the infrared spectrum.
These images are now being spotted by the James Webb Space Telescope, owing to its infrared capabilities.
James Webb Space Telescope was launched from French Guiana at the end of 2021 and arrived in its final orbit around the sun in early 2022 and was earmarked as a milestone for future space exploration.
Now, the first usable high-quality images are being sent back to Earth.
