Lets go to Jupiter!

Looks like NASA and Lego are doing something together, once again! This time the Juno probe is going to have 3 minifigures attached to it. See the link for details and pictures of the minifigures milled out of aluminium.

    wonder if they will offer standard minifig versions of these 3. They would make a nice 3-pack together.

    Err why are they doing this? The aliens are going to think all humans are 2inches tall. But also, is that a new piece Jupiter has in his hand? A kind of lightning x shape?

    This is funny to read, as I actually had a plan where I was going to try and convince LEGO to send one of the LEGO spacemen into space - probably just to the International Space Station.

    I'd have been happy if they took a plastic one, but these ones are $5000 dollars each!

    I bet they'd be worth some money in the future if they are ever sold (sell them for charity?) - UPDATE: they will crash land!

    "Juno will purposefully de-orbit and crash into the planet’s surface"

    I also have another minifig idea, related to travel, which I will announce one day!

    Geocaching?

    @atkinsar Nope, although that would be cool.

    Need to get more free time at weekends before I can plan it and announce it, it should be fun. Requires me to develop a website, which I have no time to do at the moment!

    I have been geocaching minifigs in my local area!
