The Chaotic Cartwheel Galaxy Is in Focus for the Webb Space Telescope

The Cartwheel Galaxy, located 500 million light-years distant and created as a result of two galaxies colliding at great speed.

Has been beautifully captured by the Webb Space Telescope team.

In addition to unprecedented views of Jupiter, Webb has dazzled us with its early photos of the cosmos on several occasions.

 Located in the Sculptor constellation, the Cartwheel Galaxy is an example of a ring galaxy.

According to NASA, ring galaxies are significantly less numerous than the spiral galaxies that dot our cosmos.

 During the last 440 million years, the outer ring has been expanding, stimulating star formation when it bangs into the surrounding gases.
