Imagine the complexity of deploying this massive space telescope a million miles away. Unlike the Hubble, there will be no possible shuttle mission to fix problems that may develop. Launch is expected in December. First photos expected in the Summer of 2022.
"A full-scale model of the unusual telescope, shown here at South by Southwest in Austin, has been exhibited around the world to show the public how it will look out in space."
Could we attract this model to Montgomery?
