\ Solve: See New Galaxies

Canon technology is helping accelerate deep-space research by implementing revolutionary optics and high-precision processing technology in larger-than-life equipment like the Subaru Telescope.

The Subaru Telescope

When a Canon lens in the Subaru Telescope helped capture light signals from a galaxy 12.91 billion light-years away, it used our advanced image processing equipment to transform those light signals into sharp images, which helped astronomers determine the galaxy was older than the Earth itself.

Secrets of the Universe

Dark matter and energy make up most of the universe, though very little is known about it. Thanks to the Subaru Telescope with Canon's proprietary optics, however, astrophysicists are unveiling the true nature of these mysterious elements.
