NASA reveals James Webb Space Telescope's next images of cosmos

Full-color images from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope were released on Tuesday, providing a glimpse of what the early Universe looked like.

The images are some of the most detailed pictures of the Cosmos ever captured.

They provide views of five targets: galaxy cluster SMACS 0723, the gas planet WASP-96 b, the Southern Ring Nebula, the Stephan's Quintent galaxy group and the Carina Nebula.

A teaser image, released Monday, showed the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 as it appeared 4.6 billion years ago, NASA said in a press release. The combined mass of the galaxy cluster acts as a gravitational lense and magnifies much more distant galaxies behind it.
