Stars And Rogue Planet Images
We're Just Weeks Away from The
Release of the first images taken by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, there is far more science to come.
The International Team of Scientists
Will image primarily brown dwarfs and rogue planets — which have been difficult to see with less-powerful telescopes.
Are considered failed stars. Though they begin their lives in the same way as true stars
Of collapsing gas and dust, they do not gather enough mass to begin fusion.
