Lego Nasa Space Shuttle Discovery

Lego have introduced the very cool Space Shuttle Discovery and Hubble Telescope set developed in collaboration with NASA. With more than 2,350 pieces and an impressive amount of detail, the kit is a 1:70 scale model of the real thing. The Discovery Shuttle itself has retractable landing gear, a robotic arm, payload bay doors, elevons and rudder, and a removable cockpit that allows the builder to see the flight deck directly. You can also open the payload bay doors to deploy the Hubble Telescope, which Discovery actually launched 31 years ago in April 1990 as part of STS-31 mission.
