JWST model


Full-scale model of the James Webb Space Telescope (more photos here), on tour since 2005. JWST is going to be the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope, but much larger (with a primary mirror of 6.5 meters), and more complex.

All of these (even the segmented mirror) are going to be automatically unfolded in space
