Biden glimpses the future

WASHINGTON DC: US President Joe Biden says space agency NASA believes images of the cosmos released this morning could spark a new interpretation of the universe and how time works.

Mr Biden this morning unveiled the first in a range of images taken by the James Webb telescope launched into orbit in December last year. (main picture)

“The new telescope provides images from areas of the universe 13.8 billion light years away which means what we’re looking at was happening almost 14 billion years ago,” Mr Biden said.

“It’s difficult to wrap your head around the concept, but NASA tells me that the images I’ve released today are of cosmic formations from so far back in time that we may actually be looking at the future.

“It’s also mind blowing for me on a personal level that the cosmic formations we see in the images have been captured from the time I was just a boy,” Mr Biden said.
