6:27 am
into sharp focus for the 1st time. that's after nasa released images from the new james web space telescope. most powerful to be launched into orbit among the discoveries where a dying star and a stella nursery. ro bernal's now reports size enormous galaxies, locked in a cosmic dance, billions of stars, and planets, 300000000 light years from earth. this is one of the spectacular images taken by the web space telescope unveiled for the 1st time. what you're seeing is just a weeks worth of data. think what we're going to learn and 20 years. i think of the answers that we're going to get to the questions. we don't even know enough to know what the questions are to them. and in the process, we're going to learn more about who we are, what we are, what is our existence in this cosmos, ah,
6:28 am
we are looking back in time almost to the beginning. the image of the so called stephens quintet chose to galaxies, colliding and merging with one another, impelled by the force of gravity. one of the galaxies features a bright spot. scientists have identified as an active black hole, the gas and dust lighting up as it spills into the gravitational event horizon. this image shows a stellar nursery with brightly shining new stars being born at the edge of a vast region of gas and dust. this is the corina nebula, which is part of our own milky way galaxy. the level of detail showing structures and bubbles in the enormous cloud is finer than any other telescope is capable of. this image shows a dying binary star surrounded by super heated hydrogen gas and other materials spun off from the stars core elements which will re form into other stars,
6:29 am
planets. and perhaps in time living things, webb, which was launched in december, is a joint project of nasa and the european and canadian space agencies. it took more than 20 years to build an plus $10000000000.00. it's the most sophisticated space telescope ever made and makes observations in the infrared spectrum, a wave length of light not visible to the human eye. scientists were awed by the 1st images. maybe people in a broken world, managing to do something right, and to see some of the majesty that's out there. finally, this image gives a sense of the incomprehensible vastness of space and time. it is a deep look at a single area teeming with galaxies and stars. the light scene here originated 13000000000 years ago, less than a 1000000000 years after the big bang. scientists promise many more discoveries are
6:30 am
ahead. adding immeasurably to our understanding of the universe that we are a part of rob reynolds al jazeera. jonathan learning is a james web space telescope, interdisciplinary scientists, it says the significance of the image is, goes way beyond the science. we're certainly seeing farther than any telescope, as before. the web is showing it's remarkable power sensitivity and just these 1st few images. this gives us a new perspective on our place in the universe. we are in terms of our physics and chemistry of product of the evolution of the cosmos. and so to understand where we came from and whether we are unique or perhaps the common outcome of cosmic evolution requires understanding that cosmic evolution and telescopes give us that information. and web this.
