“LEGO Ideas in the wild”

On

 

Once upon a time …

 

This is the story of a small InSight lander spacecraft model built in LEGO® bricks. Here is photo report on the journey of our Lego Ideas project in places following the steps of the mission, from the launch until the landing on Mars of the real InSight spacecraft.

 

At JPL control room Pasadena California

The “flight” model of the LEGO® InSight lander on the world-famous mission control (nicknamed “The Center of the Universe”) at Jet Propulsion Laboratory center (Pasadena, California), on November 25, one day before the landing.

Erratum!

Hi guys,

We're sorry, on six languages, in English, we forgot to put the number of bricks for the InSight probe (341 bricks) :-(

 

The total set including the probe (341 bricks), the display-stand (108 bricks) and all the accessories (146 bricks), represents 595 Lego bricks, all available at Bricklink ;-)

Have it fun and enjoy it :-)
