Faraway dwarf galaxies in the universe's distant past — which will become modern Milky Ways — have an unexpectedly stretched-out appearance.
The James Webb Space Telescope has revealed galaxies in the early universe, hidden star formation, and sniffed the atmospheres of exoplanets. But it's also exploring closer to home, imaging each of the giant planets in detail. The telescope can see aspects of the planets' compositions in ways that passing satellites…
The Hubble and Webb Space Telescopes have revealed a bounty of galaxies in a pair of colliding clusters, capturing twinkling lights within.
Images capture the birth of stars and planets in multiple results from space- and ground-based telescopes.
Dust is usually the product of generations of star formation. So what is all this dust doing in the early universe, just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang?
In the JWST version of the Hubble Deep Field, astronomers are discovering what galactic life was like in the earliest years of the universe.
JWST images of early galaxies have turned up a population of flat, red disks that may have been entirely missed by previous surveys.
JWST's detection of early galaxies that are far more massive than astronomers had expected could mean we need to rewrite our understanding of the cosmos.
James Webb Space Telescope images reveal an intricate network in nearby galaxies, influenced by generations of star formation.
Three solar system emissaries have returned beautiful and even interactive vistas of Neptune, Jupiter, and Mars.
New Webb images reveal the space telescope's first exoplanet, first brown dwarf, and a stellar nursery teeming with activity.
