A few days ago, images captured by the billion dollar telescope, the James Webb space telescope, were released officially to the public. The giant telescope was a project developed for 30 long years before it was launched into space in December 25, 2021.
The above image is of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723, known as Webb’s First Deep Field, revealing thousands of galaxies in a patch of sky approximately the size of grain of sand held at arm’s length. If that’s how many galaxies are present in a tiny bit of space as small as a grain of sand, it is mind blowing to consider how many stars and galaxies are there in the whole vastness of this universe.
Photos below were also from the Webb’s telescope.
We are really a spect of dust in ocean of stars and galaxies.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” Psalms 8:3-4
If earth looks like this, I couldn’t imagine what heaven would be like.
Definitely beyond our limited mind can imagine.
I am simply in awe. We are but a speck of dust indeed.
