Lego In Space

Lego pieces turn up in the strangest places, under the couch, behind the fridge and now even in outer space but not Uranus; Jupiter actually.

A unique set of LEGOs have a special mission. Three aluminum made LEGO figurines have been attached to the space probe ‘Juno’  representing the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, Jupiter the Roman god, and Juno the Roman goddess as they head into space.

They will arrive on Jupiter in July of 2016  and the space probe will spend a year collecting data about the planet, its moons and its atmosphere.

It won't do their sales any harm either.
