Nasa offers deepest-ever look in space, the farthest humanity has ever seen in time and distance

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Nasa offers deepest-ever look in space, the farthest humanity has ever seen in time and distance” – below is their description.

Nasa has revealed a series of pictures of the galaxies that is the farthest humanity has ever seen in both time and distance. The images revealed at the White House on July 11 and 12, 2022, were captured by the new James Webb Space Telescope. The new observatory is a joint project of Nasa, European and Canadian space agencies. Part of an image shows light from not too long after the Big Bang, which was 13.8 billion years ago. Webb rocketed away in December 2021 from French Guiana in South America. The telescope is expected to be a dominant force for discovery for at least the next 20 years.
