The images will be released to the public at 10:30 a.m. US time, with the same time in Chile, via a television transmission from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
NASA has less than a month to unveil the first images of the James Webb Space Telescope, which is now fully operational. This will be a historic step for astronomy, since it will allow a broader exploration of the Cosmos.
this instrument will mainly focus on observing the formation of galaxies and stars. In addition, it will be able to capture direct images of exoplanets and novae. Objectives that are not within the reach of other terrestrial and space telescopes today.
A few weeks ago, NASA has announced that on July 12, the first images captured by the James Webb at full power will be made public.. While we’ve already gotten a glimpse of what they’ll look like when he’s photographing a nearby galaxy, this time around he’ll be running all of its elements and focusing on new sectors of space.
astronomers they believe these will be the sharpest space photos in history, while the James Webb has already demonstrated its smooth operation and even overcome obstacles such as the impact of a minor meteorite. As reported by NASA a few days ago.
Where and at what time can you see the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope?
In more detail, NASA released this week a schedule which brings with it the publication of the first photos of James Webb on July 12. The images will be public at 10:30 a.m. US time, with the same time in Chilevia a TV broadcast from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
“The live stream will air on NASA TV, the NASA app, and the agency’s website. Audiences can also watch it live on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Daily Motion,” the statement read.
In parallel, they will publish the images one by one on the websites, networks of NASA and other space agencies involved in the project. Among them, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
At 12 p.m. on the same day (and at the same time in Chile), the scientists will hold a press conference at NASA Goddard. There they will answer questions from the media and provide more details about the photos.
In addition, On July 13, NASA will do a live broadcast for all audiences via its website and social media. “Viewers will be able to submit questions on social media using the hashtag #UnfoldtheUniverse or by leaving a comment in the chat section on Facebook or YouTube,” they reported.
