The latest space observatories from NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency have photographed the largest planet in the solar system. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is providing spectra of the planets with unprecedented resolution, TVP Nauka reports.
NASA reveals more images from the James Webb Telescope [GALERIA]
After US President Joe Biden revealed the first image from the James Webb Space Telescope, the US space agency (NASA) …
Scientists directed the telescope towards Jupiter and several asteroids. Images captured with the NIRCam instrument and medium-band filter show cloud lanes and the Great Red Spot, the largest storm in the solar system. Jupiter’s icy moon Europa is visible on the left side of the image.
Combined with deep sky images, Jupiter’s images show Webb’s full potential. From faint and distant galaxies to planets in our cosmic backyard that can be seen with the naked eye, says Brian Holler of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.
In addition to Europe, the image also shows two smaller moons of Jupiter – Thebe and Metis. – I couldn’t believe we could see everything so clearly — says Stephanie Milam, deputy scientist for planetary science on the JWST mission from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Maryland
The provided images prove that the James Webb Space Telescope can track fast-moving objects. The observatory is also able to record images of the rings and moons of the planets. Scientists will now check whether it is possible to study the plumes of water thrown into space by Jupiter’s moon Europa and Enceladus, which is scattered around Saturn. TVP Science
Scientists set out to discover if the James Webb Telescope can track fast-moving objects. They chose the asteroid 6481 Tenzing, located in the asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars. The device has been shown to obtain valuable data on objects moving at speeds of up to 67 milliseconds of arc per second, which is more than double what is expected.
