Do you dare to explore distant exoplanets, to witness the formation of early galaxies, and to peer deeper into the cosmos than ever before?

The launch of the James Webb Space Telescope is quickly approaching!

Set to blast off on December 18, 2021, Webb is the most complex and powerful space telescope ever built. Canada has contributed a scientific instrument and a guidance sensor, and Canadian scientists will take part in its science mission that promises to revolutionize our understanding of the universe. Webb is an international collaboration between NASA, ESA, and the Canadian Space Agency.

In order to help with education and outreach for this event, the Canadian Space Agency is offering its partners several communication tools.
