LEGO Launched New International Space Station Build Into Stratosphere

There's a Lego Ideas International Space Station set incoming

The set emerged from a competition that LEGO held past year to mark the 10th anniversary of its ideas program, in which fans can submit concepts that the company would like to have produced. Ideas that receive 10,000 votes are reviewed by LEGO, which decides whether or not to put the set into production.

The new kit will be available from February and will cost $ 69.99. The program allows fans to submit concepts they'd like to see the company manufacture and sell. Here's LEGO's official announcement, "Build and display this spectacular LEGO Ideas International Space Station (ISS)".

According to Lego, the team asked NASA experts to approve of the design of the plastic brick set.

Yes, the model station is LEGO's newest set and is due to be released in February this year.

Once built, the 864-piece Lego International Space Station set measures 20cm high, 31cm long, and 49cm wide. There's a posable Canadarm2 with rotating joints that coincide with eight adjustable solar panels to replicate the real space station.

The first module of the International Space Station, the Russian Zarya module was launched on November 20, 1998. It comes complete with three cargo spacecraft, two astronaut minifigures, and a mini NASA space shuttle. Since then, the station has hosted a continuous human presence despite a few close calls that nearly left it vacant for a period.
