they are newborns.
James Webb Space Telescope: Another stunning image of the universe has been captured by the James Webb Space Telescope. A new image was shared by NASA’s Web Telescope Twitter handle. As the name suggests, this is a photograph of the birth of a star. These stars are called protostars in Arabic. Astronomers say no such picture of a star’s birth has ever been seen.

Countdown to new stars ⏳
Hidden within this “hourglass” neck of light is the very beginning of a new star – a protostar. Clouds of dust and gas within this region are visible only in infrared light, the wavelengths Webb specializes in. https://t.co/DtazblATMW pic.twitter.com/aGEEBO9BB8

According to NASA, the star looks like an hourglass. James Webb observed it emitting orange and blue light with an infrared camera. According to the European Space Agency, images of this star have never been seen before. The star was still a dark world because of a swirling disk of gas and dust, the blue part being the thinnest dust, according to NASA’s statement. Dust is most dense in orange light.
According to NASA, star birth isn’t complete yet. It is a protostar that was born just one million years ago. This star is so new that it has not yet developed its own energy. The disk around the star is about the size of our solar system, he said in a NASA statement. This disk supplies the protostar with matter until nuclear fusion begins. NASA adds that looking at L1527 will help us understand how the Sun formed in its early stages.
This protostar resides in the Taurus molecular cloud about 430 light-years from Earth. A star nursery where hundreds of stars are born. By the way, the James Webb Space Telescope has been operating since January. This is the most powerful telescope ever built. The web has taken many unprecedented photographs that have amazed the world and scientists. This telescope was built at a cost of $10 billion.
