Marshfield, Missouri

MissouriRoadside Attraction

The Hubble Space Telescope is one of the largest space telescopes ever launched by NASA. It’s remained in operation since 1990 and is maintained in space by astronauts. The Hubble Telescope Replica Statue in Marshfield, Missouri isn’t quite as big, at 1/4 the size of the real thing, but it is much more accessible attraction for mankind.

Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953) was an accomplished American astronomer. He discovered the expansion of the universe, showing that other galaxies besides the Milky Way exist and that they span all the way to the limits of the universe. His scientific work eventually led to the posthumous launch of the Hubble Space Telescope on April 24, 1990.

Hubble was born on November 20, 1889 in Marshfield, Missouri, and is the town’s most famous former resident. To honor his legacy this 1,200 pound, scale model of the Hubble Space Telescope was erected in front of the local courthouse and dedicated in his memory on July 4, 1994.
