James Webb Telescope Discovery Inside Jupiter!


James Webb Telescope Discovery Inside Jupiter

When scientists planned and designed the Hubble Space Telescope, the most groundbreaking astronomical observatory of its era, there were many things about the universe they didn’t know.

One of these unknowns was that stars and galaxies existed already a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. But even if they had known about these early stars and galaxies, they didn’t have the technology to make Hubble see them. It became obvious that another, even grander, space observatory will be needed to get to those early stars and galaxies. So, the technology that eventually enabled this observatory, is now known as the James Webb Space Telescope and one of its most important task would be to study our neighboring planet Jupiter using its unparalleled infrared capabilities.

So, what is James Webb going to observe inside Jupiter? And what has been discovered until now? Join us today as we are going to talk about how James Webb telescope is going to shed new light at the secrets hidden inside Jupiter. And let’s get started!
Jupiter, named for the king of the ancient Roman gods, commands its own mini-version of our solar system of circling satellites and if we look back in time a little, their movements convinced Galileo Galilei that Earth is not the center of the universe in the early 17th century. Now, more than 400 years later, astronomers will use NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to observe these famous subjects, pushing the observatory’s instruments to their fullest capabilities and laying the groundwork for far-reaching scientific discovery.
