Nasa James Webb Telescope Detects Water On Distant Planet
hear the news
Space agencies around the world, including NASA, have been engaged for a long time in search of life beyond Earth. Making an important achievement in this direction, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has detected water, clouds and haze on a giant planet located a thousand light years away. Hot gas is covered in the atmosphere of this planet. This planet is revolving around a planet like the Sun.
According to NASA, the Webb telescope has analyzed the atmosphere of this planet WASP-96 b. This has also revealed the unprecedented potential of the telescope. This is the most detailed description of its kind to date. The WASP-96 b planet is one of more than 5,000 planets in the Milky Way.
The planet is located roughly 1,150 light-years away from the southern-sky constellation Phoenix, NASA reported Wednesday. There is a huge amount of gas here. Its mass is less than half that of Jupiter and its diameter is 1.2 times that of Jupiter. NASA said that this planet is much more bulging than any other planet orbiting our Sun. Its temperature exceeds 538 ° C. That means it is very hot.
Telescope showing colorful views of space
Indeed, the James Webb Telescope has started showing views of space that have never been seen with such clarity before. After the photo of space, on Tuesday, NASA released such pictures by the James Webb Telescope which is amazing. In this, the stars of space are seen shining very brightly and with them are mountains and valleys of brown-reddish-yellow clouds.
For the first time ever so clear pictures of the Carina Nebula were found
Actually the above view is of Carina Nebula. Earlier also its pictures were found, but for the first time such a clear picture has been found. Images of the parts related to the formation of a star are not available, but for the first time, the James Webb Telescope has taken pictures of extremely fine objects.
James Webb Telescope’s Big Leap
Prior to this, the Hubble Space Telescope had analyzed the atmospheres of many planets over the past two decades. It made the first clear detection of water in space in 2013, but the James Webb Telescope has made a big leap toward detecting potentially habitable planets beyond Earth.
