It has been reported that a meteorite has collided with the James Webb telescope, which was sent into space at great expense.

Although mankind has made various discoveries, how did the universe come to be? The only clear answer to the question is not yet available. To unravel this mystery, the James Webb Telescope was developed by the US space agency NASA. The United States has pumped in $ 10 billion (77 trillion rupees in Indian currency) to build it.


It is generally believed by researchers that the universe formed from the Big Bang. In this case, the telescope, which is currently being launched into space, is there to illustrate key events in the beginning of the universe. This James Webb telescope is 100 times more powerful than the Hubble telescope previously sent by NASA. It has gold glass. Its width is 21.32 feet. This glass is made by combining 18 hexagonal pieces made of beryllium. Each piece is plated with 48.2 grams of gold and acts as a reflector.

Mankind's milestone

Launched last December, the telescope is seen as a major milestone in human history. Weighing 6.2 tons, the telescope can operate at -230 degrees Celsius. This telescope photographed the universe in various ways and sent it to Earth. It has been reported that the researchers will release them on July 12.

NASA has announced that a small meteorite has collided with the James Webb telescope.

The meteorite struck a plate called C-3 in the beryllium-gold plate mounted on the open-telescope telescope. The meteorite appears to have collided with the telescope 5 times in a row. However, astronauts have made it clear that this will not affect the operation of the James Webb telescope.

Researchers have selected and used metals to anticipate such tiny meteorites colliding with the telescope. NASA has announced that engineers will be able to modify the position of the currently damaged plate in the reflector so that a clearer view can be obtained.
