James Webb Telescope Just Detected A Bizarre Galaxy That Challenges All Cosmic Theories!

We are living in an era where scientific 
research is backed by technological advances   That have enabled us to take massive leaps 
in terms of what we know and ever since it   Started operating scientists have been making 
a lot of intriguing discoveries with the James   Webb Space Telescope Webb's first images gave 
us a detailed look at the early universe and   We've even detected carbon dioxide on an exoplanet 
with it some even speculate that James Webb could   Be the one to finally solve the mystery of the 
elusive dark matter and its cousin dark energy   Within a few months of its foray into the cosmos 
James Webb has already forced us to sit up and   Take into consideration that our well-established 
theories about the cosmos could have flaws   The most potent telescope in the world at the 
moment can do wonders for Science and also give   Sleepless nights to the scientists join me as 
we explore one of the most shocking discoveries   Made by the James Webb Telescope of a distant 
Galaxy that is located in two places at once   What is this galaxy what does it 
tell us about our universe model   And what are the next steps that will be taken by 
the scientists in light of this bizarre discovery Orbit beyond the blue only in July astronomers 
found blast z13 which was the front runner to be   The oldest galaxy in the observable universe but 
now a new candidate has entered the chat and it   Is so far away that it can break the models of our 
universe in a pre-print paper released on August 5   Rowan Naidu an astrophysicist based at Harvard's 
and smithsonian's jointly operated Center for   Astrophysics has detailed another distant Galaxy 
candidate from one of jwsd's early release science   Programs known as CS 1749 it's an extremely bright 
Galaxy that if confirmed would have existed just   220 million years after the big bang and it could 
also rewrite our understanding of the cosmos   But there's a bloody huge catch CS 1749 could be 
one of the most distant galaxies we've ever seen   Or it could be lurking much closer to home 
essentially the data seems to indicate two   Possible places for the Galaxy to be and 
we won't know which one is correct without   A lot more observation that's how it earned 
the title of Schrodinger's Galaxy candidate   How can a Galaxy like Schrodinger seem to be in 
two different places well it's all about redshift   To determine how far away a Galaxy lies 
astronomers study wavelengths of light   Specifically they're interested in a 
phenomenon of light known as redshift   In a nutshell light waves leaving distant galaxies 
get stretched over time Shifting The Waves down   The electromagnetic spectrum and making them more 
well red so ultraviolet light leaving a Galaxy   Like Schrodinger won't reach Earth as ultraviolet 
light instead it will be redshifted down into   The infrared which is great for us because 
that's just the kind of light web searches for   And Weber's various filters looking 
at distinct wavelengths of infrared   In examining a Galaxy like Schrodinger you 
can flick through the wavelengths like you   Might flick through a photo album on the first few 
pages fewer red wavelengths you won't see a thing  

Then as you turn through and the wavelengths 
become more red the ghost of a galaxy appears   In the most redshifted wavelengths at the back of 
the album the Galaxy is a clearly defined object   This would also mean we might need to rethink 
our models of how galaxies evolved in the   Earliest days of the universe galaxies 
from that long ago should not be this   Bright at least according to the model 
we currently use to explain our Cosmos   But maybe we don't need to break physics just 
yet it might be that schroding is actually a   Satellite Galaxy of one of its more massive 
neighbors and it could be much closer to us   Another group of researchers also studied this 
exact same galaxy from the early release data on   The same day Jorge Zavala an astrophysicist 
at Alma Japan and his team added to the   Jwsd data with data from an earth-based 
telescopes in the French Alps and Hawaii   They came to the conclusion that Schrodinger 
might be an imposter masquerading as a high   Redshift Galaxy when it's actually a much closer 
Gusty Galaxy undergoing rapid star formation   Scientists now find themselves in a bind since 
the data suggests two potential locations for   Schrodinger and no one is yet certain which one 
is accurate because further investigation and   Observation are still needed in particular 
spectroscopy will allow astrophysicists to   Scrutinize its redshift more accurately 
the only barrier now is time getting   Enough time on telescopes around the world 
to study Schrodinger and solve the puzzle   But hold on Schrodinger is only a part of the 
massive image released by Webb the images indicate   That massive galaxies were already forming in the 
earliest days of the epoch of ionization when the   Plasma that evenly filled the early Universe 
collapsed into more familiar stars and galaxies   Despite its tremendous size and all the ancient 
galaxies contained within it the image is just a   Tiny slice of the sky atmospheres of exoplanets 
that lie in the habitable zone of Their Stars   Artificial lights around exoplanets and study 
of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn are only   A few of the several investigations 
the super powerful telescope will run   Speaking of exoplanets Webb just clicked 
the very first image of an exoplanet   Astronomers have revealed the first photograph 
of an exoplanet taken by NASA's James Webb Space   Telescope jwsd the image occurs the bright blob 
of a world seven times heavier than Jupiter that   Orbits a star nearly 400 light years away the 
groundbreaking result is the latest in a slew of   Early exoplanet findings from the telescope and 
a test of technologies that will enable direct   Imaging of earth-like planets by Future space 
telescopes it's exhilarating to say the least   To photograph the hot young giant hit 65 426b 
jwsd blocked the light of its host star using a   Small mask known as a coronagraph this revealed 
the orbiting Planet which is thousands of times   Fainter like a firefly around the Searchlight hit 
65 426b orbits about 100 times farther from its   Star than Earth does the sun taking 630 years to 
complete an orbit this distance means it's easier  

To see the planet against the glare of the star 
that coupled with the planet's extreme heat and   Brightness it has a scorching temperature 
of about 900 Degrees Celsius a fever left   Over from its formation just 14 million years ago 
which makes it a prime target for direct Imaging   I 426b's surface features aren't visible in the 
image but Billa said it would probably look banded   Like Jupiter with belts caused by variations in 
temperature and composition and might have spots   In its atmosphere caused by storms or vortices the 
giant planet is inhospitable to Life as we know   It but it represents a class of large planets 
that scientists are eager to learn more about   With baited breath for Webb to show as our 
Cosmos like never seen before and surely   With more discoveries more challenges to the 
existing model of the universe will come forward   After all what is science if not questioning and 
rethinking everything we know but what do I know Beyond the blue
