In December of 2021, Nasa launched the James Webb Space Telescope. This telescope has the high-resolution of the Hubble Telescope combined with the ability to detect light wavelengths into the mid-infared range, like the Spitzer Space Telescope. With these two technologies combined, the Webb is able to see and capture things that may be too old or distant for the Hubble to capture. This means that it can actually capture images of stars being born, which we think is super cool.
