Nasa james webb space telescope captures a baby star may become a sun one day

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has registered a major success by discovering a star which is located very far away and may one day grow up to be like our Sun. This means it can tell us what our Sun might have been like in its early days. This telescope was launched at the end of 2021. James Webb started working in July last year. Since then, it has introduced the world to many unseen pictures of the distant universe.

Talking about its recent picture, JWST has discovered a newborn star located in the Perseus constellation, located about 1 thousand light years away from the Earth. This is known as a protostar. It is in a very early stage, yet it may be 1 lakh years old.

The report says that whenever a star is in its initial state, it does not appear exactly as expected. Compared to our Sun, which is a bright and blazing ball of fire, a newborn star appears like an empty space in the dark.

The newborn star discovered by James Webb has been categorized as HH 211. In the picture it can be seen in blue and pink colours. These are all gases which are coming out of the newborn star. Gradually these gases will start disappearing from the star and it will itself start shining. NASA says that at present the mass of this star is only 8 percent of our Sun, but as time passes, it will turn into a huge star like our Sun.
