When I posted about the new James Webb Space Telescope on Tuesday, I also linked to a similar image from the Hubble. Now, there’s a fantastic site to compare images between the two space telescopes: WebbCompare.com.

It’s not unlike the switch from standard definition television to HD. It’s a stark and astounding improvement.
