The set doesn’t just include a brick version of NASA’s iconic space station – but three mini cargo spacecraft, two astronaut figures, solar panels, and plenty more. So you’ll be able to deploy a satellite, dock the shuttle, schedule a standard ‘spacewalk’, or a not-so-standard on when you inevitably recreate the events of Gravity. To be expected, really. You can, however, seek solace in the fact that this commemorative set is reportedly 100% “NASA-expert approved” regardless of what you choose to do with it.
