Google Doodle today: Celebrating the recent achievement of the NASA James Webb Space Telescope, also known as JWST, Google dedicated a unique doodle for the space telescope. On Wednesday, the Google homepage displayed a stunning animation where the JWST can be seen as an animated character, clicking photos across the universe. The Webb Space telescope was hyped for months because it was about to showcase never before seen deepest infrared images of the universe ever seen by humanity. NASA has stated that the JWST era of space exploration will help scientists understand the universe at a deeper level.

Google posted on its blog about the Google Doodle and said, “A picture is worth a thousand worlds. Today's Doodle celebrates the deepest infrared photo of the universe ever taken by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope—also known as the JWST or Webb—a scientific phenomenon and one of the biggest engineering feats of humanity. It is the largest, most powerful, and most complex infrared telescope to ever be put into space—and the largest international space endeavor in history! Today, six months since take off, NASA released Webb's first operational images unveiling new depths and worlds”.

The Google doodle displays the yellow mirror-clad JWST riding on a purple spacecraft. Soon after, the James Webb Space Telescope brings out a gigantic camera and begins clicking away into space. The next few slides display the stunning images taken by the NASA telescope as the animated JWST bids goodbye, for now.

Sharing interesting information about the new NASA space telescope, the Google post said, “The JWST is named after NASA's second administrator, James E. Webb, who led the Apollo missions that landed the first humans on the moon. The telescope was launched from the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana on December 25, 2021 and took a month to reach its orbit at 1.5 million kilometers (940,000 miles) from Earth. The launch was made possible through the collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)”.

It has been reported that the next mission of the James Webb Space Telescope will involve observing the supermassive blackhole Sagittarius A* which lies at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
