To celebrate the reveal of LEGO Ideas 21321 International Space Station, the LEGO Group has sent the set into space.
Tied to a balloon, the LEGO set was set off into space with a camera attached to record the results. The aim was to get the replica of the International Space Station as close to the real thing as possible. The video reveals that NASA looked at the final design to ensure that the LEGO set is as accurate as possible.
The model features the International Space Station itself, along with a NASA space shuttle, mini cargo crafts and astronaut microfigures. To properly capture the actual location, the 49cm-wide model features eight adjustable solar panels.
As with many of these luxury adult-orientated sets, the instruction books includes facts and stats about the International Space Station.
The LEGO Store Nuremburg, Germany, will host a designer signing event with Christoph on January 31 from 7.00pm until 8.00pm.
