The Universe in a new dimension

Astronomical objects appear in unprecedented detail in the first images from the James Webb Telescope more

A collection of galaxy pictures, aligned in rows and columns.

An international team of scientists, including Ivelina Momcheva from MPIA, today released the largest near-infrared image ever taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, operated by NASA and ESA. It enables astronomers to map the star-forming regions of the Universe and learn how the earliest, most distant galaxies originated. Named 3D-DASH, this high-resolution survey will allow researchers to find rare objects and targets for follow-up observations with the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) during its decade-long mission. more
