We just got the most detailed view of an exoplanet’s atmosphere yet

WASP-39b, a gas giant about 700 light-years away, turned out to be an exoplanet treasure. Earlier this year, WASP-39b was the subject of the first-ever detection of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of a planet outside the solar system. Now, in-depth analysis of data from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has given us an …

Black holes are stronger than thought – magnetic fields reach deeper into galaxies

Artist’s conception of Cygnus A, surrounded by a ring of dust and debris with jets shooting out from its center. Magnetic fields trapping dust near the supermassive black hole at the galaxy’s core are illustrated. This initial study spurred a larger comparison of radio loudness with polarization and was included in the composite dataset. Credit: …

The Webb Space Telescope discovers two of the most distant galaxies

When NASA launched the James Webb telescope, astronomers hoped its infrared and high-resolution capabilities would capture parts of the universe that were farther away than its predecessor, the Hubble. They were not disappointed. This month, the Webb Telescope recorded images of two of the most distant galaxies ever seen, teasing scientists and raising questions about …
