The James Webb Telescope recently captured a striking image of the star system Herbig-Haro 46/47, revealing a red question mark shape that has fascinated astronomers.

This young star system, only a few thousand years old, provides insights into star formation and mass accumulation, including that of our sun.

The question mark pattern likely results from the merging of galaxies, a process observed in our Milky Way’s history. Astrophysicist Dr. Brad Tucker explains that the “curly” part of the question mark has undergone more twisting due to collision, while the “bottom” part remains less affected.

The telescope’s accidental discovery adds to the excitement around its contributions to space exploration, generating a wealth of new data and images in just over a year since its launch by NASA on December 25, 2021.
