On Monday, NASA officials confirmed that Vice President Joe Biden will display the much-anticipated first full-color photo from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. The event will take place at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Webb telescope's final image, known as "Webb's First Deep Field," will be the most detailed and high-resolution infrared view of the universe ever taken, revealing a rainbow of galaxies up to 13 billion years old.
This photo is just a taste of the incredible discoveries that the Webb telescope will make possible. By looking at the universe in infrared light, Webb will be able to peer through clouds of dust and gas to see some of the earliest galaxies that formed after the Big Bang. Webb will also study exoplanets, or planets orbiting other stars, and search for signs of life.
On Tuesday, the US space agency and its partners the European Space Agency and Canada's space agency are set to release a second batch of full-color photos from Webb. But Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and everyone else will get a sneak preview on Monday.
On Monday, NASA will brief the president and vice president, according to officials. Live coverage of the event will begin at 5 p.m. ET at the White House, where the first photograph will be shown.
The $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope is humanity's most powerful and largest space telescope, and experts have claimed that it may revolutionize our knowledge of the universe.
On Tuesday, the White House will hold a news briefing. NASA will then post more pictures during an event streamed live on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. ET. The first spectrum of an exoplanet captured by the Webb telescope would be included in the batch, displaying light in various wavelengths from a planet in another star system, according to NASA officials. The images could provide fresh clues into other planets' atmospheres and chemical compositions.
In addition to the potential discoveries that the Webb Telescope may enable, the very act of taking its photo is a remarkable achievement. The space-based observatory is so large and complex that it had to be launched into space in pieces and then assembled in orbit. It took more than two decades for the project to come to fruition, with delays and cost overruns along the way.
The images will show how galaxies interact and develop, as well as the life cycle of stars, from the birth of new ones to spectacular stellar deaths. The Webb Telescope will also help astronomers better understand dark energy and dark matter, two of the most mysterious components of our universe.
All of this makes the Webb Telescope one of the most anticipated scientific instruments in recent memory. And with its photo debut, it's sure to be one of the most photographed objects in space as well.
On Dec. 25, the Webb telescope was launched into space. It is able to see deeper into space and in greater detail than any previous telescope.
The telescope is about the size of a tennis court and weighs about 27 tons. It has a 6.5-meter (21.3-foot) primary mirror, made up of 18 hexagonal segments, and a secondary mirror that is about one-fourth the size of the primary.
The telescope will operate at sub-freezing temperatures just above absolute zero and will use infrared light to study objects in space.
