“Question mark” below Herbig-Haro 46/47 bodies

Already in June, the European Space Agency published a photo of the James Webb Telescope. You can see them Herbig-Haro Objects 46/47. Be as Herbig-Haro beings Nebulae that occur around young stars. They react if expelled from the stars ionized gas Dust and gases that formed around the boy celestial body were encountered at high speed. These high-energy collisions are what create objects.

The shot itself is pretty cool, but it gets weird when you get a closer look at a small part of the image. Then suddenly a file format appeared A question mark to make out.
This is the full image from NASA outlining the area where the question mark can be seen:
At Space.com you have a file Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) In Baltimore, responsible for web project planning. So it is not clear what exactly the “question mark” is. According to scientists, that is likely to change Galaxies interact Represent. Interactions can lead to the bizarre appearance. In any case, the color of the object indicates that the object so far he.
Researchers also point to this be the first timeThat question mark has been spotted. “Webb is showing us many new, distant galaxies – so there is a lot of scientific research to be done,” says STScl.

Matt Kaplan from Illinois State University to a similar conclusion as STScl. Doubt it revolves around 2 Merging galaxies can act. The curved ends in particular are very typical of this. There are a number of other possible explanations, he added in an interview with Space.com. Just He can exclude a starbecause it lacks the eight-point refractive peaks that would be common to Webb.
The photo was taken with an extension nirkam (Near infrared camera): The infrared camera is the heart of JWST. Among other things, pursuing the first starlight recording mission after the Big Bang.
