nLab James Webb Space Telescope



The James Webb Space Telescope is a telescope which observes in the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

So far, it has observed distant galaxies at high redshift, as well as cepheids in SN type IA supernovae, both of which are important in testing the standard model of cosmology, the former for the validity of galaxy formation using dark matter, and the latter for resolving the Hubble tension.
