Travel 2,000 Light-Years in 60 Seconds With New Video From NASA’s James Webb ST

Watch a video of the European Space Agency's amazing new telescope to take a brief journey through the galaxy.

A one-minute film depicts the precise location of the Southern Ring Nebula in the galaxy and is made up of dozens of separate photos that give the impression that you are utilising the telescope's zoom capability.

A blue circle encircled by radiating red and orange gases appeared in the first batch of photographs from the James Webb Space Telescope, which went viral online in recognition of the telescope's accomplishments.

Despite being noticeable and attractive when seen by Webb in near-infrared light, the brilliant star in the center of NGC 3132 only contributes somewhat to the shaping of the Southern Ring Nebula that surrounds it.

The true source of the nebula is a second star that is just barely visible at lower left along one of the big star's diffraction spikes. Over thousands of years, it has spewed at least eight layers of gas and dust.

This incredibly detailed image was created using information from Webb's Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam). It is jam-packed with scientific data, and after its publication, study will start.

It's acceptable to get a sense of awe at the video's sense of scale. The primary ten-year mission of Webb will coincide with a number of other extremely sophisticated, complementary space observatories, which promise to deliver the best photos and explanations of the cosmos and our place in it in human history in the late 2020s and early 2030s.
