Astronomers have revealed the latest image from the space telescope NASA’s James Webbwith never-before-seen detail in a region of space known as “Pandora’s Swarm”.

Webb’s image displays three huge galaxy clusters, which join to form one megamonth. The combined mass of galaxy clusters creates a powerful gravitational lensa natural phenomenon increase in gravity, allowing much more distant galaxies in the early universe to be observed using the cluster as a magnifying glass.

Only the central core of Pandora it has previously been studied in detail, by the space telescope NASA’s Hubble.

The ancient myth of Pandora is about human curiosity and discovery that demarcates the past from the future, which I think is a fitting connection to the new realms of the universe that Webb opens up, including this image of Pandora’s Swarm“, said the astronomer Rachel Bezanson from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, co-principal investigator on the Ultradeep NIRSpec and NIRCam Observations before the Epoch of Reionization (UNCOVER) project to study the region.
