The JWST space telescope has reached another milestone – providing such a sharp image that scientists did not expect it


Are you also looking forward to what the new telescope will show us as cosmic wonders?

The next stage of the JSWT (James Webb Space Telescope) telescope has been reached. All of its on-board instruments have been aligned, sharpened and calibrated, so now every system provides a clear, sharp and crisp image.

NASA boasted a photo of calibration photos. According to the results, the image performance of the telescope is better than the most optimistic estimates of scientists. Basically, the image quality is now as physically possible as the size of the telescope. All you can do is move the segment of the main mirror a little here and there.

The next stage will be “instrument commissioning”, which means further checking and testing of the main instruments in various combinations to verify that everything is ready for scientific deployment. This phase will last about two months and then we can look forward to fantastic discoveries from the depths of space.
