NASA’s Webb Space Telescope reveals stunning first full-color image (NYSE:NOC)
The image shows the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 as it appeared 4.6B years ago.
The full series of Webb’s first full-color images and data will be revealed Tuesday during a live NASA TV broadcast.
In March 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense awarded Northrop Grumman (NOC) a $72M contract to demonstrate a high-energy laser prototype using the company’s coherent beam combining technology.
The company said it will test the prototype at progressively higher powers later this year to prove the coherent beam combining design.
