Stunning images of Jupiter captured by the James Webb Telescope – Diario El Ciudadano y la Región
The James Webb Space Telescope has been instrumental in obtaining never-before-seen images of Jupiter. Giant storms and strong winds that generate the formation of aurora appear, which undoubtedly fascinate everyone who looks at them.
A través de un comunicado la NASA expresó su emoción por las fotografías tomadas gracias al último telescopio lanzado al espacio en conjunto con las agencias espaciales de Estados Unidos, Europa y Canadá: “Para le mas ser ser honest de honest s Good. “These new images allow us to see that the planet’s auroras extend at high altitudes above the north and south poles of Jupiter,” said Emke de Pater, a professor emeritus at the University of California who was the lead person for the project.
The telescope has a near-infrared camera (NIRcam), which has three infrared filters, allowing the view generated on the largest planet in the solar system to be viewed from all dimensions. In turn, Webb is the most powerful and complex artifact in the history of astronomy.
The images also show, with fine clarity, the “Great Red Spot,” a sandstorm that, according to the space agency, is so large that it “could engulf the Earth.” Similarly, the rings of Jupiter can be seen “a million times darker than the planet” as well as two small moons called Amaltea and Adrastea.
“This image summarizes the science of the Jupiter system program, which studies the dynamics and chemistry of Jupiter itself, its rings and its satellite system,” says Thierry Foucher, a professor at the Paris Observatory.
En James Webb was launched last November and is currently about 1.6 million kilometers from Earth. According to specialists, the value of the telescope is 10 billion US dollars.
