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.
