Piercing the Void

For more mind-bending context on the James Webb Space Telescope:

  • I highly recommend this 11-minute documentary on how it came to be, how it works and what it will enable us to explore many years from now.
  • A direct comparison with the best images we had so far from the Hubble telescope
  • Zoom all the way out to understand the tiny sliver of the universe the Webb telescope captured. We’re looking at trillions of star systems and we ain’t seen nothing yet.
