Canuck Telescope To Search Galaxies

NASA's new James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will use Canadian technology to peer further than ever into the final frontier when it begins its mission, scheduled for 2018. 
The Canadian Space Agency will soon deliver two critical components for the JWST - an ultra-precise guidance sensor and a spectrograph to find even the faintest objects in space.
"This technology may help find the next habitable planet our universe," Industry Minister Christian Paradis said Wednesday. "Once again, Canada's space sector is pushing the frontier of what is possible."
The JWST will orbit Earth at a distance of 1.5 million kilometres, giving it a unique ability to study the first stars to form after the creation of the universe through the Big Bang.
