Life-Size LEGO Astronaut

Life-Size LEGO Astronaut

As a tribute to the 50th anniversary of NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing, LEGO created a life-size model of one of the mission’s astronauts using about 30,000 bricks. We love the helmet reflection detail on the 6’3″ tall sculpture. The model will be on display from 7/18-7/20/19 on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

Chris Hadfield may already have returned to Earth, but before he left the ISS, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage designed a zero-G game for the astronauts for their rare bit of downtime. Care for a round of Space Darts?
