Nasa has released detailed images of 19 spiral galaxies captured by the James Webb Space Telescope, being analyzed by scientists from the University of Oxford, providing new puzzle pieces for astronomers and astrophysicists.


Thomas Williams, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, is processing data from latest pictures, aiming to fill gaps in knowledge about galaxies structure, evolution, star formation, and life-cycle.

Scientist from the Physics at High Angular Resolution in Nearby Galaxies (PHANGS) project have released the sharpest view of  galaxies at these wavelengths, a privilage and a challenge, as they worked early in the JWST’s lifecycle.
