James Webb Space Telescope will release its 1st science-quality images July 12

We now have a date for our first real images from NASA’s next-generation observatory.

Following half a year of commissioning in space, NASA will release the first operational images taken by the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope on July 12, according to an agency statement posted Wednesday (June 1). While Webb officials are still keeping those first imaging targets secret, the agency emphasized that it took five years of work among the several participating space agencies to decide what those first images will show.
