The James Webb Space Telescope: A Glimpse into the Cosmos

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured a stunning image of the starburst galaxy M82 in 2006, with the small box at the galaxy’s core representing the area captured by the NIRCam instrument on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. The Webb image, taken in 2015, shows red filaments tracing the shape of the galactic wind, while different wavelengths of light are represented by different colors in both images.

In the Hubble image, light at .814 microns is colored red, .658 microns is red-orange, .555 microns is green, and .435 microns is blue. The filters used for these images are F814W, F658N, F555W, and F435W, respectively. In contrast, light at 3.35 microns is colored red in the Webb image, 2.50 microns is green, and 1.64 microns is blue using filters F335M, F250M, and F164N.
