For several months the optical system has been aligned and images are now coming back to us, showing some of the first stars and galaxies ever formed. Images also include objects from Mars outward to the Kuiper belt. JWST will also show us how new stars and planets are in the process of forming.Jim Porter has worked as an aerospace engineer in several states, including Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, CA.
