Within the tempestuous Carina Nebula lies “Mystic Mountain.” This three-light-year-tall cosmic pinnacle, imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 in 2010, is made up primarily of dust and gas, and exhibits signs of intense star-forming activity. The colors in this composite image correspond to the glow of oxygen (blue), hydrogen and nitrogen (green) and sulfur (red).

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership with European Space Agency and Canadian Space Agency, will soon reveal unprecedented and detailed views of the universe, with the upcoming release of its first full-color images and spectroscopic data.

The Carina Nebula is one of a list of cosmic objects that Webb targeted for these first observations, which will be released in NASA’s live broadcast beginning at 10:30 a.m. EDT Tuesday, July 12. Each image will simultaneously be made available on social media as well as on the agency’s website.

在汹涌的船底座星云内有一座“神秘山”。这座三光年高的宇宙顶峰由哈勃太空望远镜的广角相机3于2010年拍摄,主要由尘埃和气体组成,并显示出强烈的恒星形成活动的迹象。该合成图像中的颜色对应于氧(蓝色)、氢和氮(绿色)以及硫(红色)的辉光。

美国宇航局的詹姆斯·韦伯太空望远镜与欧洲航天局和加拿大航天局合作,将很快揭示前所未有的详细宇宙视图,即将发布其首张全彩图像和光谱数据。

船底座星云是韦伯首次观测的一系列宇宙物体之一,将于美国东部时间7月12日星期二上午10:30开始在美国宇航局的现场直播中发布。每张图像将同时在社交媒体上发布以及在该机构的网站上。
