Biden and Nasa shared the first Webb space telescope image

From the White House on Monday, humanity got the first sight of what the observatory in space: a group of early galaxies.

In a short event at the White House on Monday night, President Biden launched the image that NASA and astronomers praised as the deepest views that had not yet entered the past of our universe.

Image, taken by James Webb’s space telescope – the biggest space telescope ever built – shows a long sky where young galaxies burned their paths into visibility only 600 million years after Big Bang.

“This is the oldest light that is documented in the history of the universe from 13 billion – let me say that again, 13 billion – years ago,” said Mr. Biden. The President, who apologized for starting the event slowly, praised NASA for its work that allows the telescope and the images it will produce.

The announcement of Mr. Biden functions as a teaser for a large cosmic slide show telescope that came on Tuesday morning when scientists revealed what Webb had seen for the past six months. You can register here to remind on your personal digital calendar to glance at them.

For Mr. Biden, the disclosure of the images is also an opportunity to be directly involved with an event that will almost certainly arouse the miracle and pride among Americans – when the approval rating drops when voters resign with high food and gasoline prices and Democrats question their ability to fight for weapons control and abortion rights.

In the atmosphere in the southern auditorium of the White House that aroused scenes from the Space Ship Bridge in “Star Trek,” Mr. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris joined Alondra Nelson, Acting Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology and Technology Policies of White Houses; Bill Nelson, former Senator Florida appointed NASA administrator by Mr. Biden; and Jane Rigby, an operating project scientist for Webb telescopes. Each of them sat at a small table which was wide in front of a large screen where other NASA officials appeared. The screen gives way to cosmic images, which are spotted with small points galaxy and lively from the end of the room.

What was in the image NASA and Biden showed?

On Friday, NASA released a list of five subjects that Webb recorded with its instruments. But Mr. Biden exhibited one of them in the White House on Monday.

The picture is called SMACS 0723. This is a piece of heaven that is seen from the southern hemisphere of earth and is often visited by Hubble and other telescopes to find a deep past. This includes a large group of galaxies of around four billion light-years used by astronomers as a kind of cosmic telescope. The extraordinary gravitational field of the cluster acts as a lens, curved, and enlarges the light from the galaxy behind it which should be too fainting and far to see.

Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator for Space Science, illustrates this picture as the deepest view into the past of our cosmos.

What about the rest of the picture?

NASA will display other photos at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday in direct video streaming that you can watch on NASA TV or Youtube. They will be displayed at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.

The pictures are the universe tourism tour that is painted in a color that is not seen by the human eye – infrared rays that are not visible, or heat radiation. A small team of astronomers and scientific outreach experts chose pictures to show off the ability of new telescopes and to drop socks from the public.

There is a southern ring nebula, a gas shell released from a dying star about 2,000 years from here, and the Carina Nebula, a large expanse of gas and stars, including some of the most massive star systems and have the potential to explode in the Milky Way.

Why does it take a long time to share the first picture of Webb?

Getting to space on Christmas last year was just the first step for James Webb’s space telescope.

Space aircraft have orbited the second Lagrange point, or L2, about one million miles from Earth since January 24. In L2, the gravitational pull of the sun and the earth keep Webb’s movement around the sun synchronizing with the earth.

Before arriving there, the telescope pieces must be opened carefully: the sun’s shield that makes the instrument remain cold so that it can precisely capture the faint infrared light, 18 pieces of hexagonal plated from the mirror.
