On July 11, the way we see space changed. Why? The world got its first look at color photos from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). A telescope is a tool used to look at faraway objects.
The telescope was launched into space last year by NASA, the U.S. space agency. It takes photos of faraway galaxies. A galaxy is a group of stars and dust clouds.
The JWST is the largest and most powerful space telescope ever! It’s the size of a three-story building. It sees through dust clouds in space. The images it takes are clearer than those from any other telescope.
