The biggest telescope will open the secrets of the universe from July, know about it

The James Webb Space Telescope will start its work from July this year and the world will get to see the best pictures of the universe. An astronomer associated with the project has said this. It is the largest and most expensive telescope ever sent into space. It was launched by the US space agency NASA in December last year. The James Webb Telescope will replace the Hubble Space Telescope, which has been in service since 1992 and is providing the world with the secrets of the universe.

According to a news agency report, this telescope has been preparing its instruments for the last 5 months. However, scientists did not give information about where the cameras of this telescope have been pointed at present. Klaus Pontopidan, a scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, said that we would really like to be surprised.

Pontopidan said that James Webb’s team has released some of the images taken by this telescope as a test, but the new images will target astrophysics, through which the universe and mankind can be understood in detail. . These images will be shot in infrared and will be colored and brought to the world. The first such picture is expected to come out in July.

The James Webb Telescope will also study those planets, which are known as exoplanets. With this, scientists will be able to know the origin, evolution and whether they are habitable. The $10 billion (about Rs 75,330 crore) James Webb Space Telescope is the largest telescope ever built. Its purpose is to help astronomers make successful discoveries.

Last month, this telescope shared an unified image of a single star. Most traditional telescopes have a primary mirror, which collects the light of stars located millions of miles away. But James Webb has 18 hexagonal mirror segments. All these joined as one big mirror and formed the image. It was a long process that required a lot of precision. NASA has told that James Webb’s team successfully aligned the mirrors under a process called ‘fine phasing’.
