The Hubble Space Telescope team offers a 2,000-square-foot exhibit, which immerses visitors in the magnificence and mystery of the Hubble mission and introduces the James Webb Space Telescope. A scale model of the Hubble is the focal point of the installation. “Satellite” units incorporate hands-on activities about how the telescope works, and feature Hubble’s contributions to the exploration of planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe.
