AN image released by Nasa shows the Southern Ring Nebula, which is visible in the southern hemisphere.
The first cosmic photographs from the James Webb Space Telescope
according to the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa), will feature first-ever views of distant galaxies, dazzling nebulae, and a distant big gas planet.
The $10 billion observatory is slated to make early observations on July 12 that will provide new information about the universe's origins, and the US
European, and Canadian space agencies are preparing for a major announcement.
Klaus Pontoppidan, an astronomer at the STSI, which is in charge of Webb, stated last week, "I'm looking forward to not having to maintain these secrets anymore, it will be a huge relief."
The Carina Nebula, a massive cloud of gas and dust located 7,600 light years away, as well as the Southern Ring Nebula, which encircles a fading star 2,000 light years away
star 2,000 light years away, were chosen as part of the first batch of full-color scientific photos by an international committee.
The three-light-year-tall "Mystic Mountain," a celestial pinnacle that Hubble famously captured in a photograph, is one of the towering pillars that make up the Carina Nebula renowned.
In addition, Webb has performed spectroscopy on the distant gas giant WASP-96 b, which was found in 2014
WASP-96 b is around half the mass of Jupiter and travels in just 3.4 days around its star while being nearly 1,150 light years away from Earth.
Stephan's Quintet, a small galaxy 290 million light years away, is the next object
The quintet's four remaining galaxies are "engaged in a cosmic dance of frequent close encounters," according to NASA.
