Kennedy Space Center is putting the finishing touches on their new Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction, and they have announced that they will be installing a full-size, high-fidelity version of the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the exhibit.
The replica cuts through two stories of the attraction, and measures 43 feet long and 14 feet in diameter. Its fully deployed solar arrays extend an additional 7 feet on each side.
“Guests can get a feel for the incredible size of the telescope and will be able to view the Hubble replica from very close up, just as they will do with Atlantis,” said Bill Moore, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
This $100 million attraction, opening June 29, will shine the spotlight on NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program and its accomplishments, most notably the deployment and servicing missions for the Hubble Space Telescope and the launch and assembly of the International Space Station.
