NASA launched the James Webb Space Telescope in December 2021, giving scientists a fresh look at the universe and giving the rest of us some great wallpapers. Fortunately, there is an easy way to view the latest images and save them as your device’s wallpaper.
Processed images from the James Web Space Telescope have been published in Twitter, the official website of the telescope and other places, but there is another portal that you may not have seen. NASA operates a Flickr profile for the telescope, which contains images of engineering tests, control centers, and best of all, photographs from space.
You can browse the entire collection in your browser, and saving the full resolution version of an image is as easy as clicking the download button (the down arrow). If you have a Flickr account, you can also follow the account to see new images. Flickr also provides an RSS feed that you can subscribe to with the RSS app of your choice, like Feedly or Inoreader.
The first photos of the James Webb Space Telescope were already great wallpapers, but the Flickr gallery is being updated with the latest images. There’s a composite of the Pillars of Creation, two merging galaxies, Jupiter in the infrared, and a fiery hourglass.
If the Hubble Space Telescope’s 32 years of operation (and counting) are any indication, the James Webb Telescope should continue to provide us with fantastic images for years to come.
