Webb Discovers Methane, Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere of K2-18 b

A new investigation with NASA's James Webb Space Telescope into K2-18 b, an exoplanet 8.6 times as massive as Earth, has revealed the presence of carbon-bearing molecules including methane and carbon dioxide.

Never Before Seen Structures In A Supernova

The James Webb Space Telescope has captured a new image of Supernova 1987A, one of the most famous exploding stars.

Webb sees carbon-rich dust grains in the first billion years of cosmic time

This observation suggests exciting avenues of investigation into both the production of cosmic dust and the earliest stellar populations in our Universe, and was made possible by Webb’s unprecedented sensitivity.

JWST completes stunning visual collection of solar system's giant planets

NASA recently released a stunning new image of Saturn, depicting the planet's rings shining brightly against the blackness of space. The powerful space telescope has now captured all four gas giants in our solar system.

Webb Telescope Tracks Universe's First Light

New results from the James Webb Space Telescope find that radiation from ordinary galaxies cleared the primordial haze left over from the Big Bang, allowing the first light to shine through the early universe.

Webb telescope detects universe's most distant organic molecules

An international team of astronomers has detected complex organic molecules in the most distant galaxy to date using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.

Webb telescope discovers oldest galaxies ever observed

The James Webb Space Telescope has discovered the four most distant galaxies ever observed, one of which formed just 320 million years after the Big Bang when the universe was still in its infancy, new research said on Tuesday.

Webb captures detailed infrared view of Uranus

The James Webb Space Telescope continues to wow astronomers and the public alike with its infrared view of deep space targets. Now its Uranus.

JWST Has Found Life's Building Blocks in The Depths of Space

In a molecular cloud called Chamaeleon I data from the telescope has revealed the presence of frozen carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur – elements vital to the formation of atmospheres and molecules.

NASA's Webb Confirms Its First Exoplanet

Researchers confirmed an exoplanet using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope for the first time.Formally classified as LHS 475 b, the planet is almost exactly the same size as our own, clocking in at 99% of Earth's diameter.

Astronomers report most distant known galaxies detected

James Webb Space Telescope has captured light emitted by the galaxies more than 13.4 billion years ago, which means the galaxies date back to less than 400 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was only 2 % of its current age.

We Have Our First Look at Neptune's Rings in 33 Years

The first picture of Neptune to be taken by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope reveals the latest, greatest details of the ice giant's atmosphere, moons, and rings in infrared wavelengths.

NASA's Webb takes its first-ever direct image of distant world

The exoplanet is a gas giant, meaning it has no rocky surface and could not be habitable. The image shows how Webb's powerful infrared gaze can easily capture worlds beyond our solar system.
