LEGO Green Lights The Mars Curiosity Rover Set

lego

There’s little to no chance that most of us will build something as complex as the Mars Curiosity Rover, but we will all soon be able to build a Lego version. It was designed by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory mechanical engineer Stephen Pakbaz who submitted it as a Lego Cuusoo project last Fall. His project was selected for production from among only three projects that received the necessary 10,000 votes needed in order to be considered.

The product is still in development so no pricing or availability have been announced, but as long as it’s less than the real thing, I’m in!

See video of the announcement after the break…
