The International Space Agency (NASA) has revealed the first color infrared image of space taken by the James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful telescope ever launched into space.
It was President Joe Biden who had the privilege of launching the first image from the James Webb Space Telescope, an image dubbed “Webb’s First Deep Field” on Monday. The press conference lasted only 10 minutes and presented a first historical picture from across the universe.

“If you hold a grain of sand on the tip of your finger an arm’s length away, that’s the part of the universe that you see – just one small speck,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said during the press conference.
It shows the galaxy cluster known as SMACS 0723, which has been observed by space telescopes such as Hubble. One of the most striking aspects of the first high-resolution image of space to be released is the hexagonal light you can see in the image, one of the advantages of how the mirrors on the James Webb Telescope are formed.
There are also circular spots of light scattered in the center of the image, which is caused by the effect of a ‘lens’. The gravity of the massive foreground clusters, which are only about 4 billion light-years away, is changing the way light from deep space reaches the telescope. In some cases, they appear Galaxies are in two points due to impact, and astronomers can study this light to better understand what those deep galaxies look like.
The James Webb Space Telescope Infrared Imaging captures images of cosmic objects in black and white, Hubble-style, and image processing software is used to reveal every minute detail of space. Those who helped create the images then did a great job of artistic magic as they mapped out wavelengths of space. Infrared to highlight the most important features in the first published image of space in high resolution and crystal clear colours.
Some of the galaxies in the picture are only a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. Due to the powerful capabilities of the Webb Telescope, we are seeing it for the first time ever. What’s really interesting about them is that they appear larger than nearby galaxies.
The redder galaxies in the image are much further away from us than the bluer ones, so you would expect them to appear smaller than the blue ones,” says Jonty Horner, an astrophysicist at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia. Instead, he notes, the redder galaxies appear much larger. Because of the deflection of light known as “rotation angular diameter”.
It should be noted that the James Webb Telescope was launched aboard the Ariane launch vehicle from the European Space Agency’s Kourou spaceport in French Guiana. Its development lasted about 30 years at a cost of about $10 billion and is the successor to the Hubble Telescope, which has been in use for more than 30 years.
