Canadian visible astronomy satellite. MOST was a suitcase-sized microsatellite designed to probe stars and extrasolar planets by measuring tiny light variations undetectable from Earth. Astronomy satellite built by Dynacon Enterprises Ltd. for CSA, Canada. Launched 2003.

AKA: Microvariability and Oscillations Of STars. Status: Operational 2003. First Launch: 2003-06-30. Last Launch: 2003-06-30. Number: 1 . Gross mass: 60 kg (132 lb). Height: 0.65 m (2.13 ft). Span: 0.30 m (0.98 ft).

This was done with a small telescope (15 cm aperture) using new Canadian attitude control technology. The satellite was also equipped with an amateur radio payload.

    MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars) was a Canadian Space Agency project with a 0.15m telescope which would make photometric observations of stars down to mag 6 with 1 part per million accuracy in the 3500-7000 Angstrom band. Canada's tiny "humble space telescope", celebrated its tenth anniversary of operations in 2013.
