Examining the photographs taken by the James Webb Space Telescope, scientists announced that they detected three supermassive bright celestial bodies that are considered to be “dark stars”.
The James Webb telescope (JWST), which was developed jointly by the US Aerospace Agency (NASA) with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), was successfully launched on December 25, 2021 and started working by placing it in its orbit.
The James Webb Space Telescope, which will replace the aging Hubble Space Telescope, is investigating whether there is life on new planets discovered beyond the solar system.
Darkness found the stars
Examining the photos taken by the James Webb Space Telescope, scientists found three supermassive bright celestial bodies that are considered to be “dark stars”.
In the research, it was stated that the three stars photographed by the Webb Telescope may be “dark stars”, the first stars to form in the universe.
It has been stated that the “dark stars”, which have been theoretical until now, are 10 billion times brighter than the Sun and were thought to have existed before the stars of the type visible today were formed in the universe.
Investigations on three “dark star” candidates, named “JADES-GS-z13-0”, “JADES-GS-z12-0” and “JADES-GS-z11-0”, are helping to reveal the nature of dark matter and Webb’s detection. It has been noted that it could help unravel the mystery of galaxies too large to exist right after the Big Bang.
