These are the solar panels from a 1:5 scale model of the Hubble Space Telescope fabricated by the Lockheed Missile and Space Company, the contractor responsible for building the flight spacecraft. The model (Catalogue #19830233000) depicts the exterior shell of the spacecraft as well as the exterior assemblies required for its operation. The solar panels are non-functional and appear to be laminated or screened image.
Lockheed Martin gave this object to the Museum in 1983.
Gift of the Lockheed Missile and Space Corporation
