This is the reconstructed full-scale model of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP). The object contains flight and flight-like parts, reconstructed and reassembled for display. Three of the four reflector elements in this array are flight backups and one is a mock-up. The framework is the original structural thermal engineering model of the receiver box for WMAP.
