hear the news
For the first time ever, pictures taken of a planet outside our solar system have been released from the James Webb Telescope. These are called exoplanets. The US space agency NASA has claimed that these pictures from outside our world tell us the changes coming in the entire astronomy field.
These images depict the exoplanet HIP65426b, which is estimated to be up to 12 times larger than the planet Jupiter in our solar system. While the age of the Earth is estimated at 450 million years, this exoplanet is only 1.5 to 20 million years old. An exoplanet is a gas giant planet. That is, due to not having a hard surface, it is not habitable. Although it was discovered in 2017, but the latest pictures are much clearer. This was only possible thanks to James Webb. Earlier the Hubble Telescope had also taken pictures of exoplanets.
Exoplanet so bright that it is difficult to take a picture
According to astronomer Sasha Hinkley of the University of Exeter, UK, exoplanets are very bright and bright. Infrared and filters are used for this. Each filter shows different forms of the planet. The image of HIP65426b was also taken in four different wavelengths of infrared.
