Full scale model of JWST on display in Texas.

The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) will be a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror. The telescope will be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket from French Guiana in Spring 2019.
JWST will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.

At least Russia didn't go and spend billions on new stadiums that aren't optimally used after FIFA. This looks like it is a temporary addition. :)
A valid point indeed. Just wish there was a more attractive way of doing it.
