Seeing The Universe Like We’ve Never Seen It Before

Now that the James Webb Space Telescope has released its first pictures, it is time for the technology programs to start.

We meet 5 researchers who will be using the telescope during its first cycle of operations looking at the earliest galaxies, red giant stars in the disc of Andromeda, star forming regions in the MIlky Way and nearby galaxies, the Trappist-1 exoplanet system, and mysterious icy bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune.

    you are not alone….. and i am not from this planet

  3. 27:00 – Don’t forget to survey the Teegarden’s Star / planetary system. This system has fewer planets (2) in the host star’s green zone, but is only about 12 light years distant, relative to our Sun, as opposed to Trappist’s-1’s 40 light year distance.

    Should make a space ship out of this material for human travell

  6. socialism works

  7. We don’t realize how small we really are bigger the biggest scenario you could. And it’s infinite times larger then that. This is what boggles my mind. The scale is simply unfathomable. The universe we know is a tiny grain of sand in some other universe. Which is a speck a dust in a larger universe. Think about microbes and atoms, this smaller then them exist life forms below. Crazy

  8. Fake . Where’s the moon and sun?

    This documentary really bought some tears down the eyes! Such things should kept on, Because it’s most fascinating thing that could ever be. The bigger “WHY” question

  10. The amazing part is the first Webb images were made in less than a day yet they’re far more detailed than what other telescopes could produce in weeks.
