NASA Engineering Model Hubble Space Telescope 1st 2nd?Gen.”Rare”W/Signed Posters:
I acquired this model and 2 signed servicing mission posters at a small NASA related and space technology sale outside of Washington D.C. at the residence of the NASA Senior Supervising Design Engineer Jan Owings who worked building the Hubble Space Telescope. 1st 2nd ? Generation Model was actually constructed to aid engineers in the actual construction of the actual telescope. The cosmetics of the laminated cardboard, paper, aluminum and rubber is in good shape over all. There are no holes, rips, tears or any other visible imperfections. However please note that one of the models “Large Telescope Panels “ is missing unfortunately. This large size mengineering model from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope Program Office. Extremely rare NASA first generation paper model of the Hubble Space Telescope, standing approximately 13″ in height and 12″ wide with extended solar array panels. One of the the top Directors on the Hubble Project was Jeffery Hoffman, Ordered the design of my the models named them STS-61, (SM-1).” The carefully detailed model, with articulating high gain antennae, has every panel and bay labeled for easy reference. This working model originates from the Hubble Program Office at the Goddard Space Flight Center and was used as a reference by NASA engineers and Mission Control personnel. Models such as this one can be viewed in various NASA documentaries pertaining to the earlier Hubble Service Missions. A handsomely rendered working NASA model that falls into the ‘endangered’ category—a remote handful of these models have survived over the years, with this example all the more desirable. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL PICTURES PRIOR TO PURCHASING.
