James Webb telescope mockup moves to Springs   

The full-scale model of the James Webb Space Telescope will be permanently on display at the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs,    

thanks to a donation from Northrop Grumman, which made the announcement on Monday, April 8.   

Before the actual James Webb Space Telescope was launched on December 25, 2021, a full-scale model of the telescope roamed the globe for more than ten years.    

The most advanced space scientific observatory in the world is the James Webb Space Telescope.   

According to Northrop Grumman, the telescope is enlightening us about our role in the cosmos by examining the mysterious architecture and beginnings of the universe,    

studying far-off worlds surrounding other stars, and resolving puzzles inside our solar system.   

As with the telescope, the full-scale model is tennis court-length and nearly three floors tall. It was made to teach viewers about the telescope's breakthrough engineering and mission.   

Chris Adams, vice president and General Manager of Strategic Space Systems, Northrop Grumman, said, “From New York to Paris, this life-size replica of the Webb Telescope inspired communities around the world and invited friends and families to explore the cosmos together.
