Lego unveils a Space Shuttle Discovery and Hubble Telescope set

The new Lego NASA Space Shuttle Discovery set, which was officially revealed by former astronaut Dr. Kathy Sullivan who was part of the mission that launched the Hubble Telescope more than 30 years ago, is a 2,354-piece kit aimed at adults.

The 2,354-piece build, which is aimed at adults, is a 1:70 scale model of the real thing. This version of Discovery is packed with details, including a functional landing gear, payload bay doors, elevons and rudder.

You can contain the telescope within the shuttle’s payload bay or display it separately with the solar array extended. The shuttle and telescope each have stands and plaques with key data from the STS-31 mission, which launched the Hubble Telescope on Discovery in April 1990.

The Lego NASA Space Shuttle Discovery kit will be available starting April 1st. It costs $200/£170/€180.
