Peter Hennessey must really love anything space-elated because he has built his own Hubble Telescope. You might be wondering, "Are you serious? But isn't that telescope huge?" Yes, it is huge, and yes, he built a life-sized telescope.
What is neat about this whole thing is the telescope is made out of wood. I have to hand it to Peter Hennessey for his time and effort because I know I have little time on my hands to build something massive like this. You can check out this telescope if you're in Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour.
