NASA Strikes Deal with LEGO

As part of the Space Act Agreement, NASA will send special LEGO sets to the International Space Station aboard shuttle Endeavour’s STS-134 mission in February 2011. The sets will be assembled by astronauts on-orbit and by children and student groups across the country. The construction process and activities with the sets will demonstrate the challenges faced when building things in the microgravity environment of space.

Here is a link to the press release on the NASA website.

The official motto of the partnership is “Building and Exploring Our Future.”

Thanks Eurobricks and Brothers-Brick.

EDIT: Also a new space set that has never been shown before of the Space Station.
