Where Are New Stars Born? NASA's Webb Telescope Will Investigate

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Though our Milky Way galaxy continues to churn out the equivalent of one Sun every year, in the past, that rate was up to one hundred times greater. To understand how stars like our Sun formed, we need to look back billions of years into the past. The Webb telescope will act as a time machine to peer back into the early universe. To look back even further, astronomers will also take advantage of natural, cosmic telescopes called gravitational lenses, which magnify the light from distant galaxies that are at or near the peak of star formation. The effect allows researchers to study the details of early galaxies too far away to be seen with even the most powerful telescopes alone.
