James Webb Space Telescope study reveals wide diversity of galaxies in the early universe
New data from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) have revealed that the structures of galaxies in the early universe were much more diverse and mature than previously known. RIT Associate Professor Jeyhan Kartaltepe said that JWST’s ability to see faint high redshift galaxies in sharper detail than Hubble allowed the team of researchers to resolve more features and see a wide mix of galaxies.
