(Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars)
(2000s observatory-satellite looking for stellar oscillations)
MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars)
was a Canadian satellite designed to detect minute variations
in the light of stars to study their seismology
which requires viewing stars for much longer periods
of time than can be afforded with major telescopes such
as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).
It was launched in 2003 in Russia and featured
a 15 cm telescope viewing 350 nm to 700 nm waves.
Operation was terminated in 2019.
