About 32 days of the James Webb telescope will be devoted to the JADES program to detect and characterize distant and faint galaxies, NASA said.

Hundreds of galaxies have already been discovered that existed when the universe was less than 600 million years old.

JADES program co-lead Professor Tucson Marcia Rike said, “With JADES, we want to answer a lot of questions: How did the early galaxies self-assemble? How fast did they form stars? Why do some galaxies stop forming stars?”

Previously, the Hubble Space Telescope had observed part of the sky.

“Billions of years after the Big Bang, the universe was filled with a gaseous fog that made it opaque to energetic light. A billion years after the Big Bang, the haze cleared and the universe became transparent, a process known as reionization. “Scientists have debated whether active, supermassive black holes or galaxies full of hot, young stars are the primary cause of recombination,” NASA said.
