Happy birthday, James Webb: a year in the classroom making history and breaking down barriers for science

The space telescope that the scientific community has dreamed of is a year away from us.

The James Webb Space Telescope has been showing us the universe for a year.

Astronomy fans, don’t confuse the word with astrology, is destined for a year with the introduction of the James Webb Space Telescope to the general public. one of the great wisdomwithout a doubt, of man in this centurywhich is not only able to show us impressive images of the universe, but is also helping us better understand the behavior of the universe on a scale hitherto unimaginable. Since it’s been a year since it’s been installed in the classroom, we want Pay tribute to him with his great works,

New record for James Webb: NASA telescope photographs oldest galaxy in history

James Webb’s great milestones in the first year of its history and the main data you need to know to kill brother-in-law on duty

This space telescope has a curious name and it is james webb was not a scientist famous, but NASA Administrator between 1961 and 1968, although his figure is generally recognized as the one most relevant to the modern aerospace industry. This telescope, which you may also read with the initials JWST, is a space observatory that complements the Hubble Space Telescope and that allows cover a wide wavelengthincluding infrared, with which scientists can travel back in time To observe galaxies in the stages of a young universe.

James Webb Basic Facts

  • Launched on December 25 in the spacecraft Ariane 5 ECA,
  • count with one main mirror 6.5 m in diameter, weighs 705 kg and is made of beryllium with gold plating.
  • can work at -220ºC,
  • they are parasol There is a passive thermal control system, which protects the telescope from light and heat from the Sun, Earth and Moon.

By the way, build your own James Webb at home with Lego pieces if you follow NASA’s instructions.

What are the objectives of JWST

Discover galaxies and luminous objects that formed after the Big Bang, learn about the evolution of galaxies, observe star formation, and measure the chemical and physical properties of planetary systems.

What equipment does James Webb carry with him?

The telescope’s four essential instruments are NIRCam, Near-Infrared Camera, NIRSpec, Near-Infrared Spectrometer, MIRI, Mid-Infrared Instrument, and the FGS/NIRISS, Slitless Spectrometer and Near-Infrared Imager.

What is the orbit of the telescope?

Unlike its Earth-orbiting sibling Hubble, the JWST will orbit the Sun 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.

What innovations did the James Webb telescope bring to science?

NASA maintains that the JWST’s great improvements are lightweight optics, a deployable sun visor, segmented and folding mirrors, improved detectors, actuators at lower temperatures, and the creation of ‘microshutters’.
