James webb telescope new image of heart of milky way nasa share details
The new photo shows a star-forming region named Sagittarius C. It is in the center of the galaxy, about 25 thousand light years away from our Earth. Because of its ability to capture objects located so far away, JWST has become a favorite telescope among scientists.
According to the report, this telescope can capture infrared light. For this reason the area of Sagittarius C has come into the pictures. The details found in the picture were not there in the earlier photos. Quoting the project's principal investigator Samuel Crowe, NASA has said that the image taken by James Webb is astonishing. The information we will get about space from this will be better than before.
Samuel says that stars are factories in which heavy elements are produced in their nuclear cores. Understanding stars better means we can understand the origins of much of the universe. NASA estimates that there are 5 lakh stars in this picture. There is also a group of protostars. According to the report, along with the picture, James Webb has also sent data of the surrounding environment, which is being studied. It is noteworthy that the cost of James Webb Telescope project is about Rs 10 thousand crores.
