James Webb Telescope Finds Growing Supermassive Black Holes

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) recently discovered a large group of faint red dots in the distant Universe that could be supermassive baby holes.an unexpected discovery that could change our way of understanding the origin of these enormous objects.

The research, led by Jorryt Matthee, assistant professor of astrophysics at the Austrian Institute of Science and Technology (ISTA) and published this Thursday in “The Astrophysical Journal”, explains that until the arrival of the Webb, these types of objects were “indistinguishable.”

And the new telescope, one hundred times more sensitive than Hubble, can look at the universe further and better than its predecessor and observe even the first galaxies, thanks, above all, to the fact that It works in infrared, which allows you to see cold objects, very far away or hidden behind dust.

In its first year of service, it has observed unprecedented things, but this set of small red dots could be “an unexpected advance,” according to the study.
