James Webb telescope gives us spectacular picture of carina

Although the Carina Nebula was a well-known target of the Hubble telescope, Webb’s forerunner, we get a drastically different portrayal in this Webb rendition. The Carina nebula, which is around 7,600 light-years away from Earth, is one of the biggest and brightest in the universe. Stellar nurseries are nebulae. They are huge gas and dust clouds where new stars are born. Except that we also notice the gas and dust in this Webb image in addition to the stars. Here, astronomers use the terms “cosmic reef” and “cosmic cliff” to describe a vast boundary between gas in the upper half and dust in the bottom half. The study of star formation is one of Webb’s main scientific objectives.
