Space Odyssey Exhibition in Warrington Museum

ESR Technology is very pleased and proud to support the fantastic ‘Space Odyssey’ Exhibition that has just opened for the summer in Warrington museum.

The focus of the exhibition is the Hubble Space Telescope solar array system. ESR Technology has loaned some real parts of the system to the museum. Our experts at ESTL tested one of the critical mechanisms before it was fitted onto the Hubble spacecraft. Then we had the very rare experience of examining parts of the same system, when a complete solar array system was returned to Earth in the Space Shuttle.

On display at the museum are the Hubble Solar Array Deployment Arm, its Solar Array Drive Mechanism and part of its array Bi-Stem Boom. The Hubble theme is complimented by facts, images, books and even some music that make the exhibition a must-see event.

The exhibition has already received excellent local coverage and we hope for more to follow. Here are some links so that you can read what others have said about the exhibition;
