Western researchers among first to capture James Webb Space Telescope images
Western researchers among first to capture James Webb Space Telescope images
The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) has captured the most detailed and sharpest images ever taken of the inner region of the Orion Nebula, a stellar nursery situated in the constellation Orion 1,350 light-years away from Earth. The new images released today were targeted by an international collaboration, which includes researchers from Western University.

The lonely fate of a robot on Mars
The lonely fate of a robot on Mars
Science, Health & Technology Erik Rolfsen Covered in the red dust that sealed its fate, the NASA InSight lander is slowly shutting down, more than 250 million kilometres from home. With its solar panels now obscured by the red planet's debris, the four-year-old robot is running out of power. One by one, its instruments are being taken offline: its robotic arm moving into 'retirement pose', its seismometer likely to be turned off sometime in June.

James Webb Space Telescope: beginning to see the light
Our experts are available to talk about the next big step for the James Webb Space Telescope, which they helped design: its first images, set for release this summer. The James Webb Space Telescope was launched in December with many sophisticated instruments aboard, including a Canadian guidance camera and scientific instrument co-developed by researchers at the Université de Montréal.
