The James Webb Telescope, Now a Million Miles Out In Space, Just Delivered The Deepest and Sharpest Image Of The Universe We've Ever Seen

At the end of 2021 NASA launched the long-awaited, highly anticipated James Webb Telescope into space which I wrote about here. This thing has been in the works for decades, with countless delays making many wonder if it ever would find its way out there. The idea behind the JWTS is that it would be able to show us images of the early part of our universe and the first ever galaxies from billions of years ago. 

Launching into space was just one small task compared to all the steps that would need to be completed in order for it to assemble itself and fully in commission — over 340 steps in fact. Well, turns out everything went to plan as the James Webb Telescope is currently chilling about one million miles away from Earth taking all kinds of fancy pictures of the universe. Today we got our first look and it's pretty fucking awesome. 

You are looking 4.5 billion years into the past there. It's honestly hard to comprehend with all those specks of light being distant galaxies. LOL to anyone who thought we were even close to the center of the universe. Imagine thinking we're the only life-forms out there? Not a fucking chance.

All of it is mind-blowing, but to give you an idea how advanced this telescope is, let's compare the same visual the one the Hubble Telescope took two decades ago. 

For reference the Hubble Telescope took weeks to capture that image back in 1999. The James Webb? 12.5 hours.

Space is fucking crazy and we're going to learn a whole lot about it with this insane piece of technology. 

We're going to see more tomorrow with even more images released. If you thought this was cool you are correct, but just wait.

Gotta be the coolest thing humanity has ever built and we're here to see the early results. Maybe an alien zooms on by, who knows?
