SpaceX Falcon 9, Crew Dragon and OfCourseIStillLoveYou

Falcon 9, Crew Dragon and OfCourseIStillLoveYou

Inspiration for the build

I made this lego set to inspire the next generation for space flight. It has been almost a decade since the last astronauts were launched from American soil. And even longer since we landed on the moon. SpaceX is aiming to launch American astronauts from American soil in 2020 on the Falcon 9 rocket. It's important to get the new generation excited for space, and space travel, so it won't be another 50 years until the next time humans lands on the moon, or even mars. SpaceX is leading the rocket technology development, the Falcon 9 is the first private orbital booster to launch cargo to the International space station. It is the first orbital rocket booster that has ever landed on land and the first to land on an autonomous drone ship, which is called OfCourseIStillLoveYou. 

Play Functions

The set is built to be played with. You can simulate the launch and the landing on the drone ship. You have three-stage separation, First stage from the second stage, The payload fairings and last, the payload on top of the second stage. It is also designed to be able to fold down it's landing legs. You can change out the fairings and the payload with the Crew Dragon module.
