“We’ve never seen Jupiter like this before!”: Unpublished images captured by the James Webb Telescope

We recently celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Voyager probes who gave us really amazing photos of Jupiter The moon with the lowercase letter “L” is a satellite of a planet. For example Phobos and Deimos are the two moons of Mars.

In the early 1990s, Jupiter could also be observed using terrestrial instruments, such asinfrared telescope attachment (IRTF) of course Hubble In space for close-up images of Jupiter such as those obtained during Comet Shoemaker Levi Effect 9.

And so for the planetary world: ” We’ve never seen Jupiter like this before. Everything is amazing. Honestly, we did not expect such a good picture. It’s really cool that we can see the details of Jupiter along with its rings, small satellites and even galaxies in one picture. And she adds: Although we’ve already observed many of Jupiter’s features, the infrared access provided by JWST opens up a new perspective. The combination of images and spectra at near and mid-infrared wavelengths will allow us to study the interaction between the dynamics ofatmosphereChemical composition and structure of vertical temperature in and above big red spot And in the twilight regions. »

And now Jupiter in the eyes of the James Webb Space Telescope

Article from Xavier Demersmann Published on 07/18/2022

The James Webb Space Telescope has not probed celestial bodies millions or billions awaylight yearsalso pointed out its large size Mirror On Jupiter and the potentially habitable moon, Europa. Here too, the result exceeded expectations Astronomy scientists.

The First pictures of James Webb Unveiled on July 12, effectively inaugurating the scientific expedition of the largest and most powerful space telescope ever launched, we were amazed by their discoveries on Tuesday. There is a lot to be said about each of them, from the most distant regions of the universe’s history beginning about 13.7 billion years ago in a very dense and hot soup. The laws of physics as we are… “data-image=” https://cdn.futura-sciences.com/buildsv6/images/midoriginal/1/5/5/1557798396_80921_universe.jpg “data-url=” https:// news.google.com/sciences/definitions/astronomy-universe-15239/ “data-more=”read more”>Universe reconsidering – The deepest image of the universe ever obtained » -, in Planetary nebula From the Southern Ring, passing through a nebula with amazing “patterns” of detail, not to mention the tangled galaxies of Stefan’s Pentagram, where one can see stars Singles… In short, really creative photos. An amazing leap forward in detail obtained thanks to its instruments for cosmic bodies that are tens of thousands of light-years away… to several billions of light-years away. And the “This is only the beginning!” (This is just the beginning), the astrophysicists who participated in their NASA live demonstrations reiterated.

And now, Jupiter!

Another surprise and beauty was recorded on July 12 in the Mikulski archive of STSI (Space Telescope Science Institute) as part of James Webb’s commissioning, a familiar and near object: Jupiter. Astronomers are pleased and do not hide their admiration for the quality of the images and data obtained.

Curious to see what it would be like to witness such a nearby and wonderful orb, they weren’t disappointed: These photos of the world’s largest planet solar system It already reveals its top-secret rings (NIRCam photo), Europa, Metis and little Thebes. “The images of Jupiter were designed in narrow-band filters to provide beautiful images of the entire disk of the planet, but a wealth of additional information about very faint objects (Métis, Thebes, the main ring and the difference between fog and mist).
Fog is distinguished from fog by its density: visibility extends to more than one kilometer.

says John Stansbury, who takes care of the NIRCam tool.

Regarding Europeone of the four satellites of Jupiter (visible with binoculars), we can also see its shadow on Jupiter, to the left of the famous planet Jupiter. big red spot. This potentially habitable satellite that shields a global ocean beneath a thick crust of ice will be a prime target for astronomers who hope to examine and study columns of water vapor With a space telescope. “I think that’s just one of the coolest things we’ll be able to do with this telescope in the solar system.”says Stephanie Milam, a planetary science researcher at GSFC (Goddard Space Flight Center) from NASA.
