New Finding of James Webb Space Telescope Uncovering Secret of the History of the Universe
SPACE reports that the James Webb Space Telescope has helped astronomers determine the distance to nearly 200 galaxies and galaxy clusters formed in the early days of the universe.
The James Webb Space Telescope has been on a mission that involves peering deep into the universe to uncover the secrets and changes since the Big Bang. Many astronomers still have questions that are left unanswered about what happened next, such as how light emerged how the first stars formed, and when the first galaxies came together.
Canadian Astronomers Inspected the James Webb Space Telescope’s First Deep Field
UDEMNOUVELLES reports that a team of Canadian and International astronomers led by Dr. Gaël Noirot, a researcher at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, has researched carefully and analyzed the James Webb Space Telescope’s First Deep Field. Their study has recently been published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
In their study, they used the James Webb Space Telescope to measure “redshifts” of nearly 200 galaxies whose distance from Earth was previously known. Moreover, chemical signatures are also seen in its spectra.
The led researcher stated that the study about the redshifts would be a valuable resource for the astronomical community and open up new avenues of research.
