B612 Foundation's Sentinel Telescope

The Sentinel is an infrared asteroid hunting space-based telescope to be launched in 2017 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9..


Based on the B612 Foundation's proposed Sentinel Telescope (covered here on Helios Labs) this SketchUp model was made to show the scale and basic features of the spacecraft. The animated .gif was made in GIMP after taking shots of the model from different angles in SketchUp. The model was rotated 10 degrees, 36 times for a complete 360 degree rotation. To see the original specs used to build up the model, see B612's data sheet here - or visit their website here.

This model is also now available for downloading on SketchUp's 3D Warehouse here. Enjoy!
