NASA has released a picture of the constellations that formed shortly after the explosion in Space. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has photographed galaxies around 4.8 billion years old.
US President Joe Biden unveiled the photo taken by NASA’s flagship mission James Webb Space Telescope in New York on Monday afternoon. “It has opened a new window in our cosmic history,” he said.
The James Webb Space Telescope has been launched into space by a joint venture between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency.
Lamiya Ashraf Mowla, an astrophysicist of Bangladeshi descent, has been working as a member of the Canadian team on this project since 2020.
The Canadian-expatriate Bangladeshi scientist is doing research at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Toronto.
Born in 1991 in Malibagh, Dhaka, Lamiya Ashraf Mowla started her formal education at Willes Little Flower School in Kakrail. After completing O-Level and A-Level, she moved to the United States and was admitted to Wellesley College with a fully-funded scholarship. She then did her Ph.D. in Astronomy from Yale University in the United States.
