First Clear JWST Image Has Been Released With Mind-Bending Resolution

The first image has been released with all 18 of the JWST's mirrors powers combined. It may be an image of an ordinary star but astronomers are almost speechless with excitement at the capability demonstrated in this one incredible image. The mirror's performance so far has been so good that the JWST's operators are confident the largest space telescope ever deployed will meet, and likely exceed, the scientific goals for which it was built.

Face Of Stone Age Woman Reconstructed With 4,000-Year-Old Skull Found In Sweden

A 4,000-year-old skull found in the forests of Sweden has helped reconstruct the face of a Stone Age woman. To understand her jaw and mouth shape, the teeth were closely studied. There was also a ligament attachment in the eye socket, giving an indication of the inclination of the eye and how deep the eyes were.
