Okay, I admit–this is whimsically related–but related nonetheless. Genius idea, really! You have space, and you have LEGO, what should you do? You mash them all together, of course.
This Product Design and Development site shows what happens when you do mash them together: cool ideas and brick models. Don’t forget to click on the “View” link within that article to see the other model pictures. The “Sunbeam” satellite, on a real, projected mission, will circle within the sun’s corona, and is a very nice model.
If you don’t have the imagination of these folks, don’t worry. You can always just buy the Star Wars line of LEGO sets.
