As Live Science reports, the researchers presented their findings in a paper posted on the preprint database arXiv on July 26. They have found that the newly discovered galaxy has a record-breaking redshift of 16.7. This means that its light has become about 18 times more red. These finds have not been reviewed yet.
It is worth noting that on July 12 last month, the first picture taken from this telescope was revealed to the world. In this the distant universe was shown in the best way. This galaxy cluster, named SMACS 0723, was known as the first deep field of the James Webb Telescope.
The US space agency NASA launched this telescope in December last year. The construction of James Web cost $10 billion (about Rs 75,330 crore). Till now this telescope was setting itself in space. This work has now been completed.
Images taken from the largest telescope ever deployed in space are dominating the world. However, this telescope has been damaged in the initial phase of its mission. In May this year, information came to light that the primary mirrors of the telescope were damaged by the collision of meteorites. This loss appears to be more than what was being thought. NASA’s report says that between January and June, 6 attacks of micro meteorites on this telescope caused little damage 5 times. But a meteorite has damaged the telescope. The incident took place between 22 and 24 May.
