James Webb telescope captures ‘bones’ of a distant galaxy

(ORDO NEWS) — NASA’s James Webb Telescope continues to capture impressive images of the far reaches of the universe.

This time, the telescope took a picture of what NASA called the “bones” of spiral galaxy IC 5332, more than 29 million light-years from Earth.

As seen in these high-contrast images, the older Hubble telescope was able to show how the dust gathers into spiral patterns, forming the shape of a galaxy.

The James Webb Telescope is able to see through the dust the gaseous structures that define the basic structure of a galaxy unfolding at infinity.
