The James Webb Space Telescope’s first images have scientists excited (and a bit relieved)


The James Webb Space Telescope has captured its first grainy images of a distant star and mission scientists are, to put it mildly, ecstatic. 

Today (Feb. 11), NASA unveiled the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope, which has identified starlight for the first time using its NIRCam instrument (which is essentially a camera that also helps to keep the primary mirror’s segments aligned).
