Lego unveils a Space Shuttle Discovery and Hubble Telescope set

by Jeremy

It is the 40th anniversary of the first space shuttle flight and 31 years since the launch. The company worked with NASA to create the kit, which includes the telescope. The 2,354-piece build, aimed at adults, is a 1:70 scale model of the real thing. This version of Discovery is packed with details, including functional landing gear, payload bay doors, elevons, and rudder.

You can contain the telescope within the shuttle’s payload bay or display it separately with the vast solar array. The shuttle and telescope each have stands and plaques with critical data from the STS-31 mission, which launched the Hubble Telescope on Discovery in April 1990.

The Lego NASA Space Shuttle Discovery kit will be available starting April 1st. It costs $200/£170/€180.
