Team shares findings from James Webb Space Telescope images

AUSTIN, TX – The team he works with The science of early emission of cosmic evolution (CEERS) survey associated with the James Webb Telescope believes they have found a mass that is one of the most distant galaxies.

Dr. Steven Finkelstein is an associate professor of astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin and a CEERS principal investigator. He works with researchers across the country studying basic science.

Over the past few weeks, they have analyzed nearly 700 images from the James Webb Space Telescope using a special computer.

“Analyzing it, making beautiful images, like what you see here, and trying to find distant galaxies,” Finkelstein said.

“Here we’re looking at a spiral galaxy, and the interesting thing about this is that compared to the Hubble images of this galaxy, you can see all these tiny little dots in that galaxy – star clusters. They are single.” .

One of the most interesting things they found was a red object.

We know it’s a galaxy, and we know it’s far from the universe. We’re going to say, we’re pretty sure it’s farther than anything we’ve seen with Hubble. So, very, very early in this century, said Finkelstein: world history.

Finkelstein said they named the table galaxy after his 9-year-old daughter.

“After a short discussion, my daughter asked me to name a galaxy after her and I kind of offered it as a joke and there were a lot of people involved. It’s really great to be able to do that with her,” he said. to share.”

Finkelstein said the team is excited to continue investigating the Webb Telescope data and what it can bring to the astronomical community.
