In the center of the photo, it is possible to see a bright strip and lazily winding spiral arms threaded with dark clouds of dust.

It is noted that the telescope could make a photo due to the WFC3 Wide Field Planetary camera.

“These observations also lay the groundwork for future observations with the upcoming NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope, which will peer into nearby galaxies and observe the earliest phases of star formation,” the message says.

As we reported, NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance started the search for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet. The rover will work at Jezero Crater, where earlier the lake was situated. The scientists are sure that the rover will find there the evidence of life there (if it was there). Nevertheless, about 500 scientists will work on the Earth and analyze data received by Mars 2020 Perseverance.
