A large infrared telescope, designed to be the Hubble telescope's successor. The telescope is expected to launch in 2018. A full scale 'model' of the telescope will be on display from 03/08 to 03/10 at SXSW, just minutes from the Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue.
Chatter suggest this may not be a coincidence, and an ulterior purpose may be at play.
Talks taking place surrounding the exhibit include 'Are we Alone?' and 'Unravelling Cosmic Mysteries.'
