That James Webb telescope picture was awesome, but wait until they zoom out

We were given an incredible new glimpse into the history of the universe today with Nasa’s first image from the James Web space telescope.

The picture shows unimaginably far-flung galaxies as they were 13bn years ago and jaw-dropping doesn’t quite cover it.

But wait for the moment in this video – about 10 seconds from the end – when they hit the ‘zoom out’ button.

And here it is again, done slightly slower this time.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s someone who actually knows what he’s talking about.

Ah yes …

And here are just a few of the other things people were saying about it today.
