Santa won’t be the only one taking flight this Christmas Eve, as scientists prepare to launch a telescope that has its sights set on seeing, well, everything in the cosmos.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is set to take flight Dec. 25, marking the much-anticipated launch of the world’s largest and most expensive telescope to date.
Eric Sorenson reports on how Canada has played a key role in its development.

Made out of tin foil at least they fool the fools all lies
Nasa 90 billion a year for lies ! Where’s the camera looking at earth doesn’t exist why so many lies
O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not "Three" – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One God. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.
The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto Allah, nor will the favoured angels. Whoso scorneth His service and is proud, all such will He assemble unto Him;
Then, as for those who believed and did good works, unto them will He pay their wages in full, adding unto them of His bounty; and as for those who were scornful and proud, them will He punish with a painful doom. And they will not find for them, against Allah, any protecting friend or helper.
O mankind! Now hath a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light;
As for those who believe in Allah, and hold fast unto Him, them He will cause to enter into His mercy and grace, and will guide them unto Him by a straight road.
Canadians just love to slap our names on things we had a very small contribution too. like how elon musk was Canadian bred after he used his two year stint in Queens as a stepping stone to get into the US.
How about you tell us what's in our on Oceans before venturing else where
this is really good. maybe we can find another planet to destroy. thanks.
Who gives a f*ck!!! Stay home, don’t socialize, don’t have dinner parties, don’t go to the beach, but watch the news and be indoctrinated!, lol!.
Yay more space fraud
I'm not hearing positive things about the actual purpose of this creation.
Earth is flat
your not going to see the beginning with a scope and yes we are alone other than god and the devil ….a 10 year old can answer that …and they dont need a billion dollar mission to find out that
looks like CGI.
Thanks for the uplifting report Global News! We need good stories like this. The telescope is already now in space at the time I'm posting this. As Canadians, lets try to keep doing little things to help people to do bigger things to better our world.
we've never discovered a new star in the entire history of astronomy.
We have telescopes powerful enough to detect the ice-cold gas floating around in space but we can't find a new undocumented nuclear fusion explosions, that is, a star.
The only logical conclusion is there are none. God is not making them anymore.
Instructions on how to find a new star.
1. Take a picture or use an old picture.
2. Wait any amount of time.
3. Take a second picture of the same patch of sky.
4. Compare the pictures,
if there is a new bright shiny dot in the second picture which appeared in the sky in the time between the first and the second picture, than, congratulations you are the first astronomer to find a star.
Good luck, we haven't been able to do it in the entire history of photographic astronomy. And there are no records from the ancient past of new stars being reported and the Persians, Greeks, and Chinese kept detailed records.
Because God made all the stars on day 4.
I'm glad to see that even though the world is falling apart and we are heading for a dark tyranny that we still have time, money and energy to send stuff into space.
Great feeling being a Canadian.
In the Beginning God created the Heavens and Earth!! Jesus is amazing and all things were created for Him!!
The current and next generation need to be interested in this type of Science instead of wasting time on Tik Tok and other vanity sites.
Then they will bring back a new virus to lock us done
Turn it around and show us earth!
Man thats one hot planet
What a waste of money.
Waste of money and taxes !! Figure how to get rid of Trudeau. This country needs improvements not waste!
one of the very few vids from Global worth a thumbs up
these are the projects humankind should be funding, focusing and collaborating on instead of wasting countless lives and money fighting wars with each other.
Why?? We have destroyed earth our water ocean need cleaning up. We could explore our oceans. NO instead we pollute outer space. Money should be to clean up earth first. AND HOW MUCH WAS THIS.????
Can we get a segment on Canada's role in the development of the Wuhan flu? Exciting to see better images of the magnificent desolation of our universe.
Lol can't say Wuhan flue even though it's without doubt where it came from
Wonder how long it will take until Musk will put some crap satellites into L2…
Canadian pride baby!!! Canada first!!!! This telescope wouldnt even happen without Canadas contribution!!!!!
Good thing everyone here on Earth has got enough to eat and access to health care.
Read your Bible and you’ll know the origin of life 🙂 great invention though.
Steps are already underway to determine if James Webb was a misogynistic and homophobic white male.
Worldwide, an estimated 19.3 million new cancer cases (18.1 million excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer) and almost 10.0 million cancer deaths (9.9 million excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer) occurred in 2020. Female breast cancer has surpassed lung cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer, with an estimated 2.3 …Feb 4, 2021
Vietnamese Scientist Vietnamese-Canadian Lisa Dang, we're so proud of you!
Fiers de nos cousins Canadiens 👊
Everything we are told about space is a lie
Great vid. Thanks
Just one big correction: Webb isn't replacing Hubble. It's very different use & purpose. Also, Hubble isn't dead yet, and could still outlast Webb which will eventually run out of fuel.
