Space model Chandra X-Ray

A 1:48 scale model of the Chandra X-ray Observatory.  It featured an opening aperture door to show the primary lenses of the observatory.  75 of these models were built for staff at TRW, now Northrop Grumman in California, who worked on the actual spacecraft.  The original prototype is in the Proach Models Museum.
