Zoom into Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex 🔍 #shorts


This video takes the viewer on a journey through space to the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex.

From our cosmic backyard in the Solar System to distant galaxies near the dawn of time, the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope has delivered on its promise of revealing the Universe like never before in its first year of science operations. To celebrate the completion of a successful first year, a new Webb image has been released of a small star-forming region in the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex. While the region is relatively quiet, its proximity at 390 light-years makes for a highly detailed close-up, with no foreground stars in the intervening space.

  1. The first super computers took up space of entire buildings.. now they compressed super computers to the size of one device no bigger than a table. All the effort and craftsmanship they put in this telescope may one day become obsolete, and they will compress it to the size of binoculars or even glasses, who knows

  2. I'm always amazed about the quality and detail of such pictures. I quite understand that generally it's a composition of images and it's probably different pictures of the same object with increasing magnifications but, still the level of detail on the last image is formidable, to say the least.
