This very large museum artifact resides in a museum near the main international airport in Washington DC. It played a very important role in space research for about 30 years and was involved launching a famous telescope.
Can you identify what this image is?
What type of sciences would be associated with launching a telescope? Give reasons for your answer.
Why is it a different colour from what you would expect?
Post your comments and I will feedback,
