James Webb Space Telescope spies giant cosmic question mark in deep space (photo)

Posted by in categories: materials, space

The James Webb Space Telescope continues to provide answers about the earliest days of the universe, but it’s also discovering more questions.

Question marks, to be precise. The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) team at the European Space Agency (ESA) released an image on Wednesday (June 26) offering the most detailed look yet at two actively forming young stars located 1,470 light-years from Earth in the Vela Constellation. In the image, the stars, named Herbig-Haro 46/47, are surrounded by a disk of material that “feeds” the stars as they grow for millions of years.
