#2023. W 29 D 2 GMT +08:00. Indicate #166 days left to go in 2023. Thanks to the high-resolution images from James Webb Space Telescope that collaborated with MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument), we can finally see a barred spiral galaxy NGC 1433 with a new look. NGC 1433 is a Seyfert Galaxy located in the constellation of Horologium. In addition, NGC 1433 is one of 19 galaxies targeted for studying Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby Galaxies. The image of NGC 1433 shows spiral arms littered with evidence of highly young stars releasing energy and the dynamic processes associated with forming stars. According to Karin Sandstorm of the UCSD, “Areas which are completely dark in Hubble imaging light up in exquisite detail in these new infrared images, allowing scientists to study how the dust in the interstellar medium has absorbed the light from forming stars and emitted it back out in the infrared, illuminating an intricate network of gas and dust.” There are nearly 21 individual studies regarding this physics at high angular resolution galaxy, and this study was recently published in a particular focus of the Astrophysics Journals.
