Full Size James Webb Space Telescope at SXSW

I didn't get a chance to attend the South By Southwest (SXSW) conference, but NASA went all out by providing a life size model of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). This telescope will eventually replace the aging Hubble telescope in the latter half of this decade, and will bring us even more cool pictures of our universe!  Four stories tall and the size of a tennis court - check it out! 

As big as a tennis court and as tall as a four-story building, a full-scale model of the James Webb Space Telescope model was on display from March 8-10 at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.  NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to Hubble and the largest space telescope to ever be built.
