NASA celebrates a year of discoveries by the Webb Space Telescope

NASA celebrated one year of discovery by the James Webb Space Telescope, presenting a new image showing 50 baby stars being born in a cloud complex 390 light-years away.

The Webb Space Telescope, the largest and most powerful space observatory ever launched, offered significant clarity on this phase of a star's life.

The cloud complex, known as Rho Ophiuchi, is the closest star-forming region to Earth, and some of the stars in the image display shadows suggesting possible planets in formation.

The James Webb Space Telescope is seen as the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope.
