NASA has released the first images taken by the James Webb Space Telescope.
One of the images, NASA said, is a mosaic of 18 “randomly arranged points of starlight”, which shows the mirror parts not aligned with the telescope all reflecting light from the same star.
Scientists are now spending time gradually adjusting the mirror segments until the 18 images become one star.
The telescope, jointly built by space agencies in Europe, the United States and Canada, will explore the oldest galaxies in the universe.
Scientists hope that the images that the telescope will take will provide insights into the universe shortly after the Big Bang, about 13.8 billion years ago.
The telescope was launched on December 25 aboard an Ariane rocket from the European spaceport of Kourou in French Guiana, succeeding the Hubble telescope, which has been in use for more than 30 years.
