The universe looks amazing in James Webb Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray photos

Four new composite images including X-rays from Chandra and infrared data from JWST. Clockwise from left, the images reveal: NGC 346, a star cluster in the Small Magellanic Cloud; the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1672; Messier 16 (also known as the Eagle Nebula); and Messier 74, a spiral galaxy similar to the Milky Way.

If you’ve ever wished you had X-ray vision, NASA has some photos for you.

NASA has released four composite images using data from several of its most advanced telescopes to depict our universe in different wavelengths of light, including data collected by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and the Hubble Space Telescope.
