NASA's James Webb Space Telescope Delivers Deepest Images of Universe Yet
What looks like craggy mountains on a moonlit evening is the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region, NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by the Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) on NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, this image, released on July 12, 2022, reveals previously obscured areas of star birth. Called the Cosmic Cliffs, the region is actually the edge of a gigantic, gaseous cavity within NGC 3324, roughly 7,600 light-years away. NIRCam – with its crisp resolution and unparalleled sensitivity – unveils hundreds of previously hidden stars and even numerous background galaxies. NASA/UPI
