Researchers confirmed an exoplanet, a planet that orbits another star, using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope for the first time.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has been a major success in its first year of operation, with scientists making groundbreaking discoveries and gaining new insights into the early universe. In this article, we highlight 25 of the most cited scientific papers from the past year, which cover research on galaxies, black holes, star formation, and exoplanets. These papers have provided valuable information on subjects such as the properties of galaxies and black holes, the formation of stars, and the characteristics of exoplanets. From discovering some of the brightest and most distant galaxies ever observed to uncovering discrepancies between cosmological simulations and observations of massive black holes, these papers demonstrate the incredible potential of the JWST. As the telescope continues to operate, we can expect even more groundbreaking discoveries and insights into the early universe.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has been brought to life in an interactive 3D model. The model is a scale model, accurately representing the size and proportions of the real JWST. It allows users to explore every part of the telescope, from the sunshield to the optics and instruments. The model can be viewed online, offering an engaging and accessible way to learn about the JWST.
