Lego Space Shuttle

Last weekend Alex and I found ourselves alone at home. I had just finished a fairly exhausting round of disc golf and after slogging through 6" snow and ice for 18 holes I was ready to sit for a while. So we decided to build the Lego Space Shuttle. Alex took care of the boosters, fuel tank, and satellite while I built the shuttle.

Afterwards we watched youtube videos of the actual shuttles taking off, landing and docking with satellites.  Then Alex insisted on recreating some of the videos with legos.

It was pretty amazing to see how much technology has changed in the last 20 years. The shuttle really is an antique at this point. Still, it made for a really fun lego project.
