The Latest Views of Our Universe with The James Webb Space Telescope

Since its launch over a year ago, the JWST has performed exceeding its original specification, bringing us the deepest and earliest views of our universe. This has allowed us to see objects as they were when the universe was only a few hundred million years old at a time when the first stars and galaxies were forming. We will see what this tells us about our origins.
