MOST

(Microvariability and Oscillations of STars)
(observatory-satellite to look for stellar oscillations)

MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of STars) is a Canadian satellite designed to detect minute variations in the light of stars to study their seismology (Asteroseismology), which requires viewing stars for much longer periods of time than can be afforded with telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).

It was launched in 2003 in Russia and features a 15 cm telescope viewing 350nm-700nm waves.
