New Research Paper – Panic! At the Disks: First Rest-frame Optical Observations of Galaxy Structure at z > 3 with JWST in the SMACS 0723 Field

One of the latest JWST research papers featuring Prof. Joseph Caruana. This paper details some early results focussing on the SMACS 0723 cluster field using the James Webb Space Telescope. Above a redshift of 1.5 (i.e. more than 9 billion years ago), it was found that the overall fraction of galaxy morphology is dominated by disk galaxies, finding ~10X more disk galaxies than was thought!
