GMALL – Unveiling the Secrets of Stars Formation across the Universe with the Webb Space Telescope
NASA’s most powerful telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, is astonishing the astronomical community with its exceptional eyesight. JWST was designed to complement and extend the discovering power of the Hubble Space Telescope. During this talk, we will learn some of the most important results astronomers achieved during the telescope’s first year of operation and how JWST’s infrared capabilities are finally allowing astronomers to look back in time to see the first stars and galaxies emerging out of the dark ages of the Universe. With JWST we now have the opportunity to follow the evolution of the galaxies over time to become the majestic grand spirals we can see today. At the same time, we can witness the formation of stars and planets within thick clouds of gas and dust, and we can study in detail the atmosphere of planets in other solar systems.
