New images of space from James Webb telescope revealed

Yahoo Finance Live's Brian Cheung and Akiko Fujita check out the first full-color images taken from the James Webb space telescope.

Video Transcript

AKIKO FUJITA: Let's take a look at scientific images from the James Webb Space Telescope.

BRIAN CHEUNG: So cool.

AKIKO FUJITA: The images provide a look into some of the oldest cosmic structures ever observed, including a galaxy cluster, with some of the galaxies shown being more than 13 billion years old, 13 billion years old. I can't even wrap my head around that.

BRIAN CHEUNG: No, and you know what I love about this? I mean, we have the image right there. We just shifted from it. But on the show, in finance news, we always want to zoom out. Everyone always says, zoom out, bro. Take a look at the Bitcoin price. Zoom out. But this is an example where it's really cool and important, sometimes, to zoom in.

AKIKO FUJITA: Yes.

BRIAN CHEUNG: To zoom in as much as possible. That's essentially what this is, right?

AKIKO FUJITA: And, you know, President Biden released further images today, saying this was a historic day. By the way, the first time we have gotten this close in terms of images. 13 billion years, think about that. That's a lot of years.

BRIAN CHEUNG: I can't wait for this-- the night mode to get incorporated into iOS.

AKIKO FUJITA: I saw you tweeting about that.

BRIAN CHEUNG: Like, just like on i--

AKIKO FUJITA: I don't get it. What do you mean on iOS?

BRIAN CHEUNG: Well, 'cause the night mode, you know, night mode now, you can zoom into the moon.

AKIKO FUJITA: Ah.

BRIAN CHEUNG: You get a good shot of the moon, you know? Like, maybe a few years from now, we'll be able to take--

AKIKO FUJITA: Maybe a partnership with NASA and Apple.

BRIAN CHEUNG: Yeah.

AKIKO FUJITA: Stay tuned.
