The James Webb Space Telescope will release its first science-grade images on July 12

We now have a date for our first real images of NASA’s next-generation observatory.

After six months of commissioning in space, NASA will release the first operational images taken by the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope on July 12, according to an agency statement released Wednesday (June 1). While Webb officials are still keeping those early imaging targets secret, the agency pointed out that it took five years of work between the various participating space agencies to decide what those early images will show.
