Watch Adam Savage Build the LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V Rocket
In 1969, NASA launched the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. The lunar and service modules nested at the tip of a massive Saturn V rocket, a complex 111-meter Heavy Lift Vehicle. How big is that? It's 18 meters taller than the Statue of Liberty.
On June 1, LEGO released a NASA Apollo Saturn V Building Kit, featuring 1969 pieces. The assembled model is roughly 1 meter high, making it simultaneously enormous (for a LEGO kit) and tiny (relative to the rocket itself). Along with the rocket, the kit includes three astronaut minifigs (presumably representing Armstrong, Collins, and Aldrin), the Eagle lunar module, the Columbia command module, and a book on Apollo history. Yes, the vehicles nest inside the top stage of the rocket.
At most outlets the kit is currently sold out. If you can't get your hands on a kit, you can watch Adam Savage along with Norm Chan and Will Smith from Tested assemble the kit on YouTube. Enjoy:
