Among the tools that have made quality of this kind possible is undoubtedly Precision steering sensor. As the name implies, it is a sensor developed by the Canadian Space Agency that takes pictures while performing scientific measurements and improves the accuracy index.

Amazing view of space

However, the test picture that made it possible to perpetuate space with great accuracy is not considered a scientific observation in all respects. In fact, the test we are talking about was useful for understanding how powerful the James Webb Telescope is, as well as its ability to Stay steady on target. In the image that brought back an amazing view of space, hundreds of thousands of galaxies can be seen, which is a romantic and fascinating background at the same time.
