Lego's collaboration with NASA is out of this world

There's very little on this planet that Lego hasn't released a kit to recreate. But the next release might be the most ambitious yet, as the brick building brand has teamed up with NASA to create its own version of an iconic moment in technological history.

Lego is set to launch an incredible 2,345-piece kit (yes, that is a lot of bricks), which will enable you to build your own version of the space shuttle Discovery, the very same shuttle that took the Hubble telescope into orbit in 1990. Complete with working parts (unfortunately not ones that'll actually shoot into space), the kit is so complex it's only suitable for those aged 18 and over. If you'd like a Lego set you can complete with the kids, try our guides to the best Lego city sets and the best Lego Space sets.
