NASA's acclaimed $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope was launched on 25 December 2021, in replacement of the Hubble Space telescope. Nearly seven months after its launch it has finally produced images that are, according to NASA, a depiction of the deepest-field views of the universe ever captured! 

The images expected to be released publicly on 12 July 2022 are astounding, and supposedly beautiful enough to almost bring NASA astrophysicist (Thomas Zurbuchen) to tears. The hard work has paid off, with the JWST about to show us a whole new perspective of space, and an extensive look at the universe as we've never seen it before.
