Host Mary Estacion takes us to Ottawa, Canada to examine the Canadian Space Agency's contributions to the Webb telescope. The Canadian Space Agency is providing the Fine Guidance Sensor, which will enable Webb to point accurately at objects astronomers want to observe, and the Near-Infrared Imager and Slitless Spectrograph, an instrument that will break light into colors for analysis, enabling the study of both extremely bright objects and the detection of faint objects near stars — like distant planets.
