Day 326- since 1981, Canada has been giving a hand in space with the Canadarm! Now on display at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, the Canadarm was first sent to space in 1981 aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia. It served over 90 missions before it was retired here in the museum. We still have the Canadarm2 in space, attached to the International Space Station. It performs a number of tasks including catching incoming supply ships and performing maintenance and repair duties. It was interesting to find out that in space, the Canadarm could lift over 900lbs, but on earth, it can’t support its own weight! #canadarm #canadarm2 #canadianaviationandspacemuseum #space #iss #internationalspacestation #spaceshuttle #canada #canada150 #museum #ottawa #ottawa2017 #ontario #exploreottawa #exploreontario #explorecanada @avspacemuseum #canadianspaceagency @canadianspaceagency @explorecanada @canada @canada150 @ottawa_2017 @ottawatourism

Day 325- I was thrilled to learn a bit about Canada’s involvement in space exploration at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum! I tracked down three of Canada’s most recognizable astronauts. I was surprised to learn that Julie Payette, Marc Gatineau and Chris Hadfield had at least two trips each into space and have all returned to become prominent figures in Canadian culture! A Governor General, a Minister in the Canadian Government and a musician/social media superstar. Each is leaving their own unique Canadian impact back here on earth! #juliepayette #marcgarneau #chrishadfield #astronaut #space #canadianspaceagency #canadianaviationandspacemuseum #museum #spaceshuttle #canada #canada150 #ottawa #ottawa2017 @ottawa_2017 @canada150 @canada @explorecanada @avspacemuseum @colchrishadfield @marcgarneau @ggjuliepayette

As a science fiction writer I love this stuff. Anything that you can use to piece together the unknown and make fiction a little more fact is so helpful! (Also it’s just pretty cool). #scifi #sicencefiction #writer #author #infinitevelocity #astroid #space #canadianspaceagency #solarsystem #nearearthobjects

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to be Launched Spring 2019

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope now is planning to launch between March and June 2019 from French Guiana, following a schedule assessment of the remaining integration and test activities. Previously Webb was targeted to launch in October 2018.

The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA’s next great multi-purpose observatory and will be the world’s most powerful space telescope ever built, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. The 21-foot (6.5-meter) diameter infrared-optimized telescope is designed to study an extremely wide range of astrophysical phenomena: the first stars and galaxies that formed; the atmospheres of nearby planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets; and objects within our own solar system. Webb is an international project led by NASA with its partners ESA and the Canadian Space Agency.
