gif fueled by imagination, this 27-year-old lego set—the solo trainer—flew thousands of hours in the hands of kids and collectors. but adam woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at google, wanted to see just how aeronautically sound lego’s design really was, so he built a giant rc version of it.advertisementmade from various types of foam, including the one-inch thick panels used to insulate a house, adam’s recreation is a near-perfect replica of the original lego model that flies surprisingly well given its angled design doesn’t look very aerodynamic. a motor failure resulted in a devastating crash for the original version of adam’s lego-inspired plane. but he’s since rebuilt it, which took about 100 more hours than the lego toy did.[youtube]check out these other amazing

private space stations could orbit the moon by 2020, robert bigelow says


giant space-station refueling depots could be orbiting the moon by 2020, but only if the trump administration makes the funding and national drive needed for it to happen a priority, according to aerospace entrepreneur robert bigelow.  bigelow, whose company, bigelow aerospace, has launched three private space-habitat prototypes into orbit — including the first inflatable space-station module, said that a commercial station in lunar orbit would be a vital destination for moon exploration.  "the key is going to be how fast the trump administration can react," bigelow said in an interview friday (march 3). the administration would have to move quickly "to energize funds and to galvanize the private sector" to make a lunar depot by end of 2020 possible, he added.
