It’s more than six months since NASA lifted its James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) into the sky to bring back important data about the Universe. That event took place after many delays, and we’re talking about the most powerful space telescope ever built.

JWST has the historic mission of looking deeper into the Cosmos than ever. The telescope is even expected to bring back photos from about 13 billion light-years away. That means very close to the moment of the Big Bang, the event that meant the birth of our Universe that took place 13.7 billion years ago.

JWST will reveal its first full-color photos on July 12th

According to Engadget.com, we have to wait only until July 12th to see the telescope’s first full-color photos. But it will most probably definitely be worth the wait. Let’s not forget that the launch of the JWST was delayed several times.

Eric Smith, the deputy program director of the Webb telescope, confirmed once again that JWST will mark a unique moment, as he is quoted by Engadget.com:

The release of Webb’s first full-color images will offer a unique moment for us all to stop and marvel at view humanity has never seen before,

These images will be the culmination of decades of dedication, talent, and dreams — but they will also be just the beginning.

Although it may sound absurd to some people, the JWST indeed needs a few months to start its actual work. It needs to calibrate instruments and perform other necessary tasks.

The telescope also aims to focus on the very first stars and galaxies that illuminated the Cosmos, as it will likely look deeper into these objects than any other telescope has done before.
