Since its launch in December 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope is projected to be one of the most ambitious devices in space.
The space observatory, which has among its main objectives: to observe some of the most distant events and objects in the universe, such as the formation of the first galaxies, will send its first images to full color and spectroscopic data to Earth.
This was announced by NASA through a release where it indicates that the clearest images of space will be obtained as it has never had in its history.
What is expected of the James Webb Telescope?
The images that Nasa will show would focus on giving a sample of the formation of galaxies and stars, in addition to capturing the first direct photographs of exoplanets and novae.

When and where can the images be seen?
The US space agency published a schedule dwhere it is explained that on Wednesday June 29 there will be a press conference with the media.
The event will discuss the status of Webb’s startup, as well as overviews of the science planned for Webb’s first year of operations and Webb image processing.
Then on July 12, at 10:30 a.m. (US time), the images will finally be released and can be seen on NASA TV, the NASA application and the agency’s website. Audiences can also watch live on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch and Daily Motion.
Additionally, on July 13, NASA will make a live broadcast for the entire public through its website and social networks. “Viewers will be able to submit questions on social media using the hashtag #UnfoldtheUniverse or by leaving a comment in the chat section on Facebook or YouTube,” they reported.
The James Webb Space Telescope is a space observatory jointly developed by twenty countries, built and operated jointly by NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency, to replace the Hubble and Spitzer telescopes.
