The James Webb Space Telescope captured a stunning view of the Crab Nebula. This celestial wonder, located 6,500 light-years away from Earth, has intrigued scientists since its discovery in the 11th century. Webb's infrared vision reveals fascinating insights into the nebula's composition and into synchrotron radiation, which appears here as a milky haze. Webb is an international collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency. (Credits: NASA, ESA, Canadian Space Agency)
