  • Summers Trucking Playing a Key Role in Replacing the Hubble Telescope. It is T-minus two months until NASA launches a new telescope to replace the aging Hubble telescope. Associate member Summers Trucking is playing a critical role in this journey. “We feel proud of what we did. We feel wonderfully blessed to be involved in this and now we are going to sit back and relax,” said Summers Trucking Vice President John Summers. For about the last 12 years, Summers Trucking in Ephrata has worked with NASA to move components of the Webb Telescope all over the country and now all over the world.
