James Webb telescope traces arcs of dusty star formation


The new super space observatory probes a dynamic star factory 200,000 light years from Earth. …

“But with Webb, we have the sensitivity limits to go all the way down to 1/10 of the Sun’s mass. So, we have the sensitivity to detect the very low mass stars in the process of formation, but with the resolution also to see how they affect the environment. And as you can see from the image, it’s a very dynamic environment.”
