The James Webb Space Telescope, currently undergoing tests before its launch next year, has captured a new stunning image of the ice giant planet Uranus. The image reveals almost all of the planet, including its hazy atmosphere and faint ring system, in breathtaking detail. The image was taken in infrared light, which helps to penetrate the hazy layers of the planet’s atmosphere. The James Webb Space Telescope is set to be the largest and most powerful space telescope ever launched, capable of studying distant galaxies and the formation of stars and planets.
