Product Idea

NASA's SLS & Artemis

Space Launch System (SLS) & Artemis - 1/110 scale


A new era of human space exploration for NASA dawns with the Space Launch System, or SLS.  This super heavy-lift launch vehicle will take the Orion spacecraft and its crew of up to four astronauts beyond Earth’s orbit, enabling missions to the Moon, Mars and deep-space destinations.

Designed to reach a record-breaking speed of Mach 23 and rated for payloads of 26 metric tons, this variant will complete the first three Artemis Lunar missions.

At 1:110 scale, our product idea includes a total of 2020 Lego bricks and has three key sections.


Core stage
  • Four RS-25 engines.
  • External fuel line.
  • Two solid boosters.
  • Launch vehicle stage adaptor.
  • 1,953 bricks and 30 decals.
  • Diameter: 10 studs, 8 cm or 3.14 inches.
  • Rocket & Boosters width: 19 studs, 15.2 cm or 2.04 inches.
  • Height: 126 studs, 100.8 cm or 39.68 inches.

Orion Crew Vehicle
  • Crew module.
  • Service module - with collapsed and extended solar arrays.
  • Launch abort system.
  • Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage.
  • 71 bricks and 19 decals.

Let’s get ready to go back to the Moon – this time to stay!

We’re getting ready to launch what will be the largest rocket ever launched in the history of humanity, it’s going to have a bigger payload capacity and a bigger faring to carry larger objects than we’ve ever been able to put into orbit. This particular rocket, the Space Launch System is going to take us to the moon, and it’s going to take us on to Mars.”
