NASA launched the James Webb Space Telescope (JWT) in December 2021, giving scientists a fresh look at the universe and giving the rest of us some cool wallpapers. There’s an easy way to check out the latest images and save them for your device’s wallpaper. Let’s explore how.
This is for desktop and mobile devices
Processed images from JWT have been published on Twitter, the telescope’s official website (this is a really cool site), and other locations, but there’s another portal you may not have seen. NASA operates a Flickr site for the telescope, which contains images of engineering tests, control centers, and best of all, space pictures. To see all the photos, you need to signup for Flickr in the top right-hand corner. Refer to the below image for an example of their gallery:
You can browse through the whole collection in your browser, and saving the full-resolution version of an image is as easy as clicking the Download button (the arrow pointing down). If you have a Flickr account, you can also follow the account to see new pictures. After creating your Flickr account, in the Search box (located in the upper right-hand corner), type in James Web Telescope to view the images.
The first few photos from JWT were already excellent wallpapers, but the Flickr gallery is being updated with the latest images. There are the Pillars of Creation, two galaxies merging, Jupiter in infrared, and the fiery hourglass.
In the 32-year run (and counting) of the Hubble Space Telescope is any indication, the JWT should continue giving us fantastic images for years to come.
