NASA’s Webb Telescope captures never-before-seen details in Pandora’s Cluster

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured never-before-seen details in a region of space known as Pandora’s Cluster. 

A new deep field image from the observatory displays three clusters of galaxies coming together to form a megacluster. The combined mass of those clusters creates a gravitational lens, allowing scientists to observe more distant galaxies in the early universe. 

The cluster’s central core has been previously studied in detail by the Hubble Space Telescope. 

By using Webb and its powerful infrared instruments with a mosaic view of the region’s multiple areas of lensing, astronomers aimed to achieve a balance of breadth
