discover the most beautiful photos captured by the James Webb Space Telescope

Over the weeks, the most powerful telescope in the world reveals images of galaxies and nebulae that had never been observed with such precision.

It should help to better understand “the story of stellar creation”. Launched into space at the end of 2021 and operational since July, the James Webb telescope has revealed impressive images of Jupiter, nebulae and distant galaxies over the weeks, providing scientists with a wealth of unprecedented data to analyze. Born of a collaboration between the American, European and Canadian space agencies, the James Webb telescope is the most powerful in the world. It conducts its observations 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.

Scientists unveiled, Tuesday, September 6, new images showing the Tarantula Nebula, a region of the cosmos where stars are born at a breakneck pace. Located 161,000 light-years from Earth, it is home to the hottest and most massive stars known. Several instruments on board James Webb have made it possible to capture new details, hitherto invisible to previous telescopes. Franceinfo takes the opportunity to present to you the most beautiful shots captured by the James Webb since its commissioning.
