The James Webb Space Telescope made history through space travel with the aim of capturing images of any nearby stars and galaxies radiating light into the universe. It is the largest space telescope in the world. The telescope launched from European Guiana in South America on a European Aryan rocket.
The BBC reports on Saturday that the James Webb Space Telescope cost at least কোটি 1 billion to build. It has been designed for 30 years. This telescope is one of the greatest scientific endeavors of the 21st century. The telescope also has the ability to search the atmosphere and weather of distant planets.
The telescope has been named after an architect of the Apollo spacecraft that landed on the moon. It is the successor to the Hubble Telescope.
Engineers from the United States, Europe and Canada have worked together to build the telescope. It will be a hundred times more powerful than any previous telescope.
Scientists have been waiting for a long time for the launch of this telescope. There were also concerns about this. “The web is a wonderful mission,” said Neil Nelson, head of the US space agency. It is a shining example of what we can achieve when we dream big. We always knew that the project would be a risky endeavor. But, of course, when you want a big reward, you have to take a big risk. ‘
The telescope has a six and a half meter wide golden mirror. It is three times wider than the Hubble Telescope. In addition, the enhanced optics are connected to four ultra-sensitive instruments, which will enable astronomers to see deeper into space.
One of the main goals of the telescope is to search for information about the original star formed 13 billion years ago, right after the Big Bang. The first heavy atoms necessary for life are formed from the nuclear reaction of these objects. These are responsible for the formation of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.
Apart from this, the environment of distant stars can be observed with this telescope. This telescope will help to understand whether any planet is habitable.
Heidi Hamel, an astronomer associated with the mission, said, “We are about to enter a whole new way of astrophysics. A new frontier. That’s what made us excited about the James Webb Space Telescope. “
