NASA unveiled the first image from the new Webb telescope today. The telescope is in orbit around the Earth and Sun, about 1.5 million miles away from Earth, and can “see” farther than any telescope to date.
As reported by NASA, this image represents the same area of the Universe as if you were to pick up one grain sand from a beach and hold it out at arms length to look at it. The number of galaxies and other celestial phenomena in this impossibly small area of our Universe should keep everything in perspective. We should be humble. And this is only the first photo.
