Lego Saturn V

We got a Lego Saturn V!

Like a bunch of 14 year old kids (more like a bunch of 5 year old kids, but the box said suitable for ages 14+!) we’ve been excitedly building it one bag at a time, over our lunch breaks.

The slideshow below charts its progress, as we assembled all 1969 pieces. I don’t believe that number is just a coincidence, I think that was very clever on someone’s part. And I love the teeny tiny spacemen!

Note the Moon is not to scale!

About Sarah Crowther

I'm a Post Doc in the Isotope Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry group. I study xenon isotope ratios using the RELAX mass spectrometer, to try to learn more about the origins and evolution of our solar system. I look at a wide range of samples from solar wind returned by NASA's Genesis mission to zircons (some of the oldest known terrestrial rocks), from meteorites to presolar grains.
