TLDR The Webb Space Telescope is a powerful tool for exploring the universe, with its infrared observation capability, ability to study gravitational lensing, analyze planetary atmospheres, and capture stunning photos.
The Webb Space Telescope is strategically positioned at the second Sun-Earth Lagrangian point (L2), which allows it to maintain a stable position relative to the Earth and the Sun, making it a valuable asset in exploring the universe.
Webb's powerful infrared observation capability allows it to capture higher resolution and better pictures, revealing faint galaxies that were previously indistinguishable to the Hubble Space Telescope.
Gravitational lensing creates distorted images of countless arcs, allowing astronomers to study distant and ancient galaxies and understand the early days of the universe.
To determine if a planet is suitable for life, astronomers need to analyze the chemical composition and temperature information of its atmosphere, which can be obtained by studying the absorption of light as it passes through the planet's atmosphere.
Observing the same celestial body using different wavelengths can often reveal different aspects and details, showcasing the complexity and diversity of the universe.
The Webb Space Telescope is not only important in science, but also in art, as it can capture stunning and gorgeous photos of the universe.
The completion of all engineering calibrations for the Webb Space Telescope signifies its powerful capabilities and readiness to capture important scientific targets.
