Science and emotion meet as astronomers share 1st JWST images

It was an emotional day for scientists as they shared with the world the first science-quality images from NASA’s next-generation observatory.

The James Webb Space Telescope, known as Webb or JWST, launched in December, then spent seven months preparing for operations. All that work is paying off, astronomers said during an event held at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland on July 12 as they discussed the stunning new data, which include crystal-clear images of distant nebulas and galaxies, as well as a detailed look at a hot exoplanet’s atmosphere.
