NASA has released an extraordinary 3D visualization of over 5,000 galaxies captured by the James Webb Space Telescope as a part of the CEERS (Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science) Survey. The stunning video showcases the Extended Groth Strip region, allowing viewers to witness the early universe in full color and three dimensions.
The cosmic journey depicted in the video takes viewers from nearby galaxies within a few billion light-years of Earth all the way to Maisie's Galaxy, located 13.4 billion light-years away.
Maisie's Galaxy, observed just 390 million years after the Big Bang, provides a glimpse into the early stages of galactic formation.
The James Webb Space Telescope, equipped with its infrared capabilities, captures a level of detail that surpasses previous observations from the Hubble Space Telescope. While the Hubble images revealed galaxies as mere points, the Webb's imagery unveils intricate details, thanks to its sensitivity to the infrared spectrum.
