JWST Countdown To Terror 😳


Recommended Posts

The data is probably just monochrome FITS files. Or i hope it is so existing tools could work with it (cant see why change the format to another).

I am very interested in seeing how they process the colours when they start presenting data to the public. I cant think of a way to make it look "realistic" since the wavelenghts are beyond human vision so mapping to RGB will probably look odd. Ill guess that the final images will have a similar colour palette as some narrowband shots aka the hubble palette.

Well Hubble introduced the Hubble Palette, so I guess we will have a Webb palette, but would probably still expect nearly all images to be predominantly red, perhaps some oranges and yellows for contrast.
