Life-Size Plywood Hubble Telescope Won’T Ever Go Into Orbit

These amazing sculptures were created by the Australian artist Peter Hennessey.  And no, they can’t fly. They’d probably burn up on lift-off if you even tried to launch one into space.

My Hubble will premiere at the Biennale of Sydney 2010. It’s a life-size recreation of the Hubble telescope constructed from lasercut plywood and steel.

Hennessey used 7 different images of Hubble to create this, rather than use a 3D model.

It took about 3 months to build. Hennessey has always been fascinated by scientific phenomena, which inspires him to create his intricate space-ship sculptures. Be sure to check out Peter’s website to see his other creations.
