Figure out about the objectives of JWST as represented by the new photographs and about the innumerable researchers and engineers who made it all happen. Learn about the atmospheres of exoplanets, Stephan’s Quintet, and the Carina Nebula. What are we hoping to find as researchers capture even more data and pics?
