We are peering deeper into the universe than ever before with NASA’s newest space-based
observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope. As the successor and complement, to the famed Hubble Space Telescope, Webb sees in infrared light and has already provided tremendous insights into the mysteries of the universe. On display is a collection of some of
the most mesmerizing imagery captured by Webb so far as we highlight stars, planets in-and-out of our Solar System, star-forming nebulae, massive galaxies, and some of the most distant objects ever observed. There are an assortment of 3D printed displays throughout the gallery, exploring the innovative technology of Webb and providing a unique perspective of various celestial objects featured in the imagery.
