James Webb Space Telescope to see starbirth in high definition

NASA’s newest deep space observatory will soon turn its eyes to a relatively nearby region bursting with young stars.

The James Webb Space Telescope has almost completed commissioning and will release its first operational images July 12. Next comes a program of early science, including an investigation of the Trapezium Cluster, a stellar nursery in the Orion Nebula some 1,350 light-years from Earth.
