NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is a telescope specially designed to detect X-ray emission from very hot regions of the Universe such as exploded stars, clusters of galaxies, and matter around black holes. Because X-rays are absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere, Chandra must orbit above it, up to an altitude of 139,000 km (86,500 mi) in space.
Metal Earth models are made from high quality steel sheets. Each model features amazing detail with parts cut from one or more 10cm square steel sheets. Easy to follow instructions are included with each kit and NO GLUE OR SOLDER IS REQUIRED! Simply snip out the pieces and bend the tabs through corresponding connection points.
