The result of CEERS has revealed the most detailed image of the James Webb Space Telescope ever. Here are the details!
The James Webb Space Telescope continues to dazzle with the images it captures. After releasing its first images in July, NASA continued to monitor new galaxies and celestial events. Now, the most detailed image ever has emerged as a result of the Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science Study (CEERS) .
CEERS consists of 105 scientists
The newly captured image is contained as a mosaic containing multiple pieces of data. The image created by the people working on CEERS was able to fascinate those who saw it. The team consists of 105 scientists and 19 researchers from 28 institutions around the world .
Data were collected using the James Webb Telescope ‘s Near Infrared Camera (NIRCam) , Near Infrared Spectrograph (NIGSpec) , and Intermediate Infrared Instrument (MIRI) . Each piece of data was taken in parallel with the others. Then the researchers brought them all together. The devices capture data using wavelengths that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Finally, they transformed the data into visible images.
This image allows scientists to more closely investigate the emissions and elements of some of the oldest galaxies and celestial events in the universe. The image, which is James Webb’s largest to date, focuses mainly on six specific galaxies , due to the plethora of those captured as part of the entire project.
These galaxies contain a bright blue spiral-armed galaxy. There is also an elliptical galaxy nicknamed ‘Pac-Man ‘ due to his resemblance to the popular video game character . Other notable galaxies include the so -called Space Kraken , believed to date back about 9 billion years .
James Webb’s largest ever image includes what many believe is the first view of supernovae by space telescopes. Researchers also published information about this discovery last month. It’s also just one of many studies that researchers have conducted based on images released by CEERS.
It may take some time to confirm these discoveries. Despite this, we know that James Webb has produced good results. However, James Webb detected water on the exoplanet. Thus, it will be possible to obtain more detailed information about the universe.
