Stars And Galaxies And An Exoplanet, Oh My!

Dr Chong Hon Yew, President, Penang Astronomical Society

Stars And Galaxies And An Exoplanet, Oh My!

The first images taken by the most powerful telescope ever - the James Webb Space Telescope - have finally been released after decades of waiting, showing us, among others, a stellar nursery where stars are born, interactions between galaxies and a unique view of an exoplanet. The images also include the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. We discuss the significance of these pictures, and what they might tell us about the mysteries of the universe.
