After months of calibrations, the space-loving citizens of the world held their breath for this moment; the first science images from the James Webb Space Telescope have been released by NASA.
The Carina Nebula, one of the brightest and largest nebulas in the sky, is 7,600 light-years away from Earth.
Below are five galaxies destined to merge.
The James Webb Space Telescope or JWST is named after former NASA administrator James Webb, who led the agency during the Apollo moon missions in the 1960s.
Below, the Southern Ring Nebula is a mere 2,000 light-years away and is an expanding cloud of gas surrounding a dying star.
