    what direction in the universe Is Webb looking into where he's finding variations in electromagnetism? Does the direction go through the Andromeda galaxy or is it near our son or Anything else?

    It might be near our sun but nowhere near our son.

    Most of the research done with the Webb telescope won't be anything as close as the Andromeda spiral and certainly not as close as the sun. Those variations are in the background radiation.

    Why would you think that? Andromeda takes up a pretty small piece of the sky and it is usually a bad idea to point these scopes anywhere close to the sun.

    Just a thought. trying to figure out what's causing the variations

    Random fluctuations in density at the point when the background radiation was formed. And that was over 13 billion years ago.

    We already measure these fluctuations and have used them to learn more about the very early universe. The Webb scope is going to look at them in much more detail as well as look at some of the first galaxies to form.

    If you are close to dark skies, you can see the Andromeda galaxy without any telescope at all. And it is quite nice in binoculars.

    Yeah I was just wondering if the direction he's looking in had anything in it like galaxies and planets or anything at all that could possibly be influencing the Random fluctuations in density

    Webb says. “So the universe may not be isotropic in its laws of physics"
    It's probably a good thing because if we lived in Rigid Universe it could snap. There's probably an unseen force causing what he and others are researching.
