LEGO continues its collaboration with NASA with a detailed model of the Space Shuttle Discovery. The 2354-piece Creator Expert kit has opening payload bay doors and a robotic arm, along with a model of the Hubble Telescope which stows inside or can be displayed on its own. The finished model measures 21″ l x 13.5″ w x 8.5″ h.
Awesome Space Shuttle
Despite its two tragic missions, with 135 launches to its credit, the Space Shuttle was arguably the most successful space program of all time. 3D animator Jared Owen explains how shuttle missions worked, along with an in-depth look at the orbiter, where astronauts spent their time throughout their journeys.
One of the craziest RC scale airplane setups we’ve ever seen. On the bottom is a model of the Antonov AN-225 super-jumbo jet, and on its back is the Buran – the Soviet knock-off version of NASA’s Space Shuttle. Once it takes flight, the shuttle can decouple and land on its own.
