The James Webb telescope published another spectacular image: the Cartwheel galaxy

New images of the ends of the universe were published by NASA (the American space agency) from the data collected by the powerful space telescope, james webb. This time, it was the Cartwheel galaxy that was the star of the show, a formation located 500 million light-years from Earth, in the Sculptor constellation.

As happened with other previous images, this galaxy had already been photographed, for example by Hubble. However, this time, the details that can be seen with the new device are amazing. What happens is that the infrared technology of the james webb it allows to cross the space dust and reconstruct a much more precise image.
