A unique telescope that travels through space. The Slovakian also participated in its development

It will bring images from the beginnings of the universe. The $10 billion James Webb Telescope is already on its third spaceflight. One of his detectors also helped develop a Slovak astrophysicist who would also observe the galactic nucleus with a telescope.

The most powerful telescope is located within 1.5 million km. It is actually farther from the Earth than the Moon.

“Now the complex structure of the telescope is gradually decomposing,” explains astrophysicist from the Institute of Experimental Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences Pavol Bobek.

Adds Jan Balai of the Institute of Experimental Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, who is also a member of the International Academy of Astronautics.

After reaching the finish line, it will be calibrated for half a year. Scientists are watching every step of the way, there are billions in the game.

“Webb is having trouble getting removed from a service mission, as he was in the era of Hubble. You don’t have to do anything quickly, you have to walk step by step,” says Balai.

Astrophysicist Michal Zagic also helped develop one of the cameras and at the same time the spectrometer of the telescope. “The unique thing is that we will be able to detect the uninterrupted radiation of cold gases and earthy bodies,” he says.

In addition, Michal Zajaček has been placed on a prestigious list and will be observing the nucleus of the galaxy with a telescope, and some time ago his team discovered mysterious objects there.

“It could be that very young stars are in the vicinity of a supermassive black hole. What was shocking and remains a mystery how these things can be transported there.”

The James Webb Telescope is a time machine. It will take us back to a time when our universe was still in its infancy. It will allow us to make amazing observations of the universe, even to the most distant distances we have not yet reached.
