Lhe images of the universe captured by the James Webb, the most powerful telescope launched so far into space have surprised the scientific community and the world. One of the public figures who have shown their astonishment at these historic revelations has been the pilot of Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton, who thanked NASA for publishing these amazing photos.

“The English pilot highlighted how “powerful” the universe is by collecting photographs of the planetary nebula called Southern Ring Nebula and the ‘Stephan’s Quintet’, a cluster of galaxies showing huge shock waves and tidal tails.

These are the most profound images of the history of space ever seen. The universe is so powerful and each of us is part of it. Thank you for sharing the magic of the universe with us @NASA,” Hamilton wrote on Twitter.

The first image from the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope was unveiled Monday at the White House, a jumble of distant galaxies jutting out into the cosmos, a picture never seen before.

It was this Tuesday when four more images were revealed showing parts of the universe that had already been seen by other telescopes, but none with the power of the Webb that with the use of a infrared light spectrum allow them to be seen from another perspective.

The images of this Tuesday correspond to the South Ring Nebula, the Keel Nebula, the ‘Stephan’s Quintet’ cluster of galaxies and a giant blue planet called WASP-96b.
