“The Webb Space Telescope allows us to look back in time to just after the Big Bang”, explains physics teacher Michio Kaku.
Some of the stars in this image date back to 13.000 millions of years, giving us a whole new way of looking at the universe”, says the expert.
The entry into operation of the NASA instrument, of the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency has revealed the best snapshots of the universe ever seen.
“It's a whole new way to explore the universe, it marks the beginning of a new era”, says the astronomer Michelle Thaller.
But it's also a look into the past, Well, some of the new photos are actually an image of what happened millions of years ago., explains NASA administrator, Bill Nelson.
“The speed of light is 186.000 miles per second (almost 300.000 km per second) and that light has been traveling for 13.500 millions of years, only a few hundred million years after the beginning of the universe. That's the threshold we're crossing”, Explain.
