A new set of stunning images of 19 spiral galaxies has been released by the James Webb Space Telescope, showcasing the galaxies in near- and mid-infrared light.

These high-resolution images reveal millions of stars, as well as intricate structures of gas and dust on small scales beyond our own galaxy. Astronomers have long planned to use the James Webb Space Telescope to obtain the highest resolution near- and mid-infrared images ever taken of these galaxies, and the images are now publicly available for exploration. Teams of researchers are studying these images to uncover the origins of these intricate structures, which will ultimately inform theorists’ simulations and advance our understanding of star formation and the evolution of spiral galaxies

The James Webb Space Telescope has also produced the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date, magnifying more distant galaxies, including some seen when the universe was less than a billion years old. This deep field, taken by Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam), is a composite made from images at different wavelengths, achieving depths at infrared wavelengths beyond the Hubble Space Telescope.

These new images from Webb provide a more complete understanding of our universe, offering detailed views of spiral galaxies and distant objects, and they are expected to significantly contribute to our knowledge of the cosmos. See them below:
