The James Webb Telescope has discovered six ancient galaxies that according to NASA, shouldn’t exist. These galaxies date back to when the universe first started and are roughly 13.5 billion years old and are as old as our own galaxy, the Milky Way. These galaxies are a lot older and bigger than expected. This new discovery will help us learn more about the beginnings of the universe but could even change our understanding of how galaxies are formed.
NASA has also recently announced the crew that will be going on the first Moon mission in more than 50 years. Among the crew is the first woman, the first person of colour and the first Canadian on a lunar mission. This crew have been selected for the Artemis II mission which will see them blast off in November 2024, circle around the Moon and return back to Earth. This mission is testing the route that will be taken on future lunar missions which will eventually see astronauts setting foot on the Moon before the end of 2025.
