The James Web Telescope has found six objects in a new image of Pandora’s Cluster, believed to be six galaxies that existed 500 to 700 million years after the universe was created during the Big Bang.
The objects found in space are much larger than scientists expected. As it is CNNThe Telescope has “captured 50,000 sources of near-infrared light in a new image of the Pandora Cluster, a mega cluster of galaxies.”
Of the received these galaxies call into question many existing theories about the origin of galaxies.
“If even one of these galaxies is real, it will push against the limits of our understanding of cosmology,” said astrophysicist Erica Nelson, who is working on the new study.
Galaxies are as big as the milky way and have many red stars scattered around.
Before the Webb Telescope returned the image, scientists expected to see small blue dots representing new galaxies.
