The Hubble Space Telescope 

hubble

It has been too long since we featured a project from Cuusoo, mainly as it’s been too busy but also as we have a few views we aim to share with you about the crowd sourcing project. Anyway news is quiet and with the Nasa’s Maven Mars mission set for launch I thought it would be worth featuring a NASA related project.

I have picked the famous Hubble Space Telescope, the project is by GRusso who has done other Cuusoo projects such as the 1st BTTF Train before the guys behind the BTTF project did their own version and took the main stream support. The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was carried into orbit by a Space Shuttle in 1990 and remains in operation. A 2.4-metre (7.9 ft) aperture telescope in low Earth orbit, Hubble’s four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble.

The project has been do digitally and rendered really well and makes the project look outstanding and as we already have had to projects that a spaced based pass review I can see this one doing well if it hits review stage. You can see plenty of photos over on flickr.

If like me you like your Space projects then head over to Cuusoo and vote for it.

      As explained above you need to vote for it on Cuusoo and then if it gets 10k supporters it will be reviewed as a potential product.
