Lego Stephen Hawking

20 May

I want to build a lego Stephen Hawking.
He will ride on my shoulder and lovingly whisper the secrets of the universe.
And it will be wonderful.

Lego Space Station

10 Mar

I actually meant to post this last week, but got distracted, and am currently playing catch-up with all the articles and science/awesome-related content I’ve been meaning to post.


Japanese astronaut Satoshi Furukawa built a Lego model of the International Space Station while aboard the International Space Station. CollectSPACE.com reports that the model was “part of an educational collaboration between the Danish toy company and NASA.” You can watch a brief time lapse video of the model coming together and read more about it over on CollectSPACE.com.



I love this story for so many reasons. I love Legos. I love space. I love the concept of Legos in space, so you never have to accidentally step on a Lego again. I love goddamn super awesome astronauts. Mr. Furukawa, please have my babies.

Lego Space Shuttle Tribute

6 Mar

This is the very definition of awesome!

Such beautiful nostalgia. Submitted by Youtube user  and set to the music of Radical Face, this man pays his tribute to the end of the space shuttle era by launching his own little shuttle made of legos.

He writes: “My Lego tribute to the end of the space shuttle era. Proving that although retired, this machine can still fly, albeit in toy form.The launch took place from central Germany and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367. The launch took place on the 31st of December 2011, the equipment was recovered via GPS tracking 240 km S-E from a remote area.”

Simply amazing.
