LEGO on JupiterPosted: August 3, 2011
I’m really enjoying this LEGO and NASA partnership. Not only do we get awesome sets, but LEGO and space have always mixed well.Gizmodo reports that three aluminum minifgure statuettes are going to Jupiter on the new Juno spacecraft. I personally can’t think of any better ambassadors to to the largest planet than Galllileo, Juno, and Jupiter himself. They aren’t real articulated minifigs, but the fact that they’re far more durable and space-worthy makes up for it. I also doubt that I’m the only one wishing for that lightning bolt and planet to show up in actual sets. Maybe a Mount Olympus theme is in order?
