The European Space Agency shared a unique photo that astronomers had captured using the combined efforts of two of the best space telescopes of their time: “Hubble” and “James Webb”.
The spacecraft captured the spiral galaxy M74, 32 million light-years from the ground.
Hubble took a picture in optical and ultraviolet bands, and James Webb photographed an object in infrared. The combined photo turned out to be quite different from both originals.
As noted in the press release, the addition of crystalline Webb observations at longer wavelengths will allow astronomers to pinpoint star-forming regions, accurately measure the mass and age of star clusters. Stars and better understand the nature of small dust particles. Drift in interstellar space.
