Webb Space Telescope's First Year in Images

James Webb Space Telescope marks its first anniversary with an image of Sun-like stars and future planetary systems forming in the Rho Ophiuchi molecular cloud complex.

It’s been a year since the $10 billion space telescope started releasing scientific images. Let’s look back on the observatory’s first year in images:
