It's been more than half a year since the James Webb Space Telescope went into space and so far we have discussed it only once or twice, that too in a very confident way. But in today's article we are going to tell you about some of the best pictures sent by the James Webb Space Telescope, which will be a lifetime moment for you too. So let's here about the new discoveries of our James Webb Telescope.

Friends, after spending about 25 years of hard work and spending 10 billion dollars, when the James Webb Space Telescope went into space on December 25, 2021, as a Christmas gift for people like us, a lot of expectations were being put from it. it was said that the telescope could also show us the view of Big Bank, but even after half a year has passed, we have come to know very little about the data sent by it. But recently, NASA has released some such photos which have told us very interesting things about the James Webb Space Telescope and the universe.
First Images from the James Webb Space Telescope
James Webb Telescope sent us three pictures recently and all three are different from each other.
Large Magellanic Cloud
The first of these pictures does not come first of the large Magellanic cloud. Friends, there will be many of you who do not know about the Magellanic Cloud, So let's discuss it first. Actually it is a satellite of our galaxy. It revolves around our galaxy just like our moon. Between the years 1519 and 1522, when Ferdinand Magellan was travelling in his ship, he discovered this galaxy for the first time with his team and that is why the name of the galaxy was named after Magellan itself. This galaxy is 158200 light years away from our planet. And because of its proximity, it is the second or third closest galaxy to our Milky Way.
The picture you see above has been captured by the mid-infrared instrument (MIRI) of the Jemes Webb space telescope. If you are wondering what is so special about this galaxy's picture, Why do we usually see such a picture? The difference will come automatically when you just look at this image. The blurry picture you are seeing was snapped by the SPTIZER telescope just a few years ago. And the thing to note is that both these pictures are of the exact same frame of the exact same place. But you can see how blurry the picture that was captured by the Spitzer telescope is. And it is not possible to spot well whether the place where we are concentrating is finally a star or it is an interstellar dust particle. But if we talk about the mid-infrared instrument of the James Webb Space Telescope, then its image looks very detailed and clear and it doesn't look like this is a photo of 200000 light years away. Looking at such images makes one wonder how advanced technology has really become.
2MASS J17554042+6551277 Star
The next picture sent by the James Webb Space Satellite is of a star named 2MASS J17554042+6551277. After going into space, the first task of the James Webb Space Satellite was to align its primary mirror properly so that even far away images come out laser sharp. After its launch from Earth on December25, 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope was so large and technically complex that it took 3 months to align its mirrors. After investing so much time, his mirrors were finally able to be aligned on March 11, 2022. Scientist after waiting for two days, as soon as they got the first picture captured by James Webb Telescope on March 13, 14, and after analyzing it well, posted it publicly on March 16. 2MASS J17554042+6551277 The star is about 2000 light years away from the Earth and there are two reasons why this photo is special. First of all, because of this being the first picture. But the second thing that you can notice in this picture is that all the elements present far away are focusing on the star. The light of the star also looks quite scattered and hexagonal. This is because our James Webb Space Telescope is made of 18 hexagonal mirrors. These 18 hexagon mirrors capture photos in such a way that each mirror has some part of the image and that whole part would focus on the mirror in the middle, due to which a light-centric image is produced. In the coming days, when we see any image of the James Webb Space Satellite, we will definitely see this honey comb effect in it. And the specialty of this effect is also that, due to the light panorama, we will be able to analyze the depth of the galaxy a little easier.
This third picture was taken aback when the mirrors of the James Webb Space Telescope were not even perfectly aligned. The picture shown above would be looking at you in a dark tone. After seeing such a colorful, bright and amazing picture first, you must have found this picture quite boring. And you must be wondering why it is being shown like this. But that's the case. Because this is the quality of pictures when the mirrors of the James Webb Space Telescope were not aligned properly. This picture is of the Ursa Major Constellation. In which you will see 18 different stars. You will be surprised to know that the 18 star in this picture are not separate stars but a single star which is named HD84406. This star is the brightest star present in the Ursa Major Constellation. Now you are thinking, how can this possible? It is clearly visible in the picture that there are 18 stars in the picture, which we can easily count. But as we told you, when this picture was taken, all the mirrors of the James Webb Space Satellite were in their aligning process. Which is how 18 of 18 mirrors obtained their reflexive photos, and we see the same star HD 84406 in so many different forms. At that time, the mirrors of James Webb were not focused in one place. So friends, these were the 3 most recent pictures released by the James Webb Space Telescope. NASA has given an official statement that the James Webb Space Telescope is going to start at its functioning highest speed in the coming month. After that, we are going to see the best pictures one after the other and you will forget to count, You will get so many great images.
