Revealed: The Webb Telescope’s Jaw-Dropping New ‘Ultra Deep’ Image That Uses Warped Spacetime

Posted by in category: space

Have you ever seen a “megacluster” of galaxies? You have now. Above is a flagship new “ultra deep” image from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) of Abell 2744—nicknamed Pandora’s Cluster—a megacluster of three separate clusters of galaxies and a stunning 50,000 objects.

There’s so much mass in this megacluster that its gravity warps the fabric of spacetime to create a natural super-magnifying glass called a “gravitational lens.” It’s that which has allowed JWST to see much farther into the cosmos than it’s natively capable of.

The latest deep field image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope features all-new details of a violent megacluster of galaxies about four billion light years from Earth.
