New Nebula Photos Tease James Webb Telescope Potential
The Hubble Space Telescope gave us many gifts. The James Webb Space Telescope will give us more. Here’s more from SlashGear:
This is only a taste of the next-level imagery we’ll be able to capture in the future with the Webb space telescope. The images captured here require the advanced optics to appear this sharp and clear. With Webb, another step beyond Hubble, we’ll be able to see space with a combination of wavelengths and clarity not yet available with any other combination of instruments.
“Many near-infrared wavelengths will only be visible from a space telescope like the Webb,” said [Rice University’s Patrick Hartigan]. “But for near-infrared wavelengths that reach Earth’s surface, adaptive optics can produce images as sharp as those acquired from space.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
