Dazzling image from James Webb Space Telescope prompts science rush

The spectacular image of the Deep Infrared Universe from the James Webb Space Telescope has discovered 42 new lens images of galaxies and revealed the shape of the lens to unprecedented depth, potentially helping us see the very first galaxies.

The revelation of the James Webb Space Telescope deep field image, by US President Joe Biden in a special White House event held on July 11, was a closely guarded secret. Teams of astronomers raced to be the first to analyze it, with three new papers posted to the community preprint server within a week of the image’s release.
