The James Webb Space Telescope: A Glimpse into the Cosmos

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured an image of the starburst galaxy M82 in 2006, showcasing a small box at the galaxy’s core. This area was captured by the NIRCam instrument on NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, which revealed red filaments in the Webb image. These filaments represent the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emission that traces the shape of the galactic wind.

In the Hubble image, different wavelengths of light are represented by different colors – light at .814 microns is colored red, .658 microns is red-orange, .555 microns is green, and .435 microns is blue. Filters F814W, F658N, F555W, and F435W were used for these images. On the other hand, in the Webb image, light at 3.35 microns is colored red, 2.50 microns is green, and 1.64 microns is blue, with filters F335M, F250M, and F164N used.
