- Is this is the first Lego photo sent into space??
- NASA a has selected a pic by @BrikWerx (on Instagram) to accompany the spacecraft OSIRIS-REx (the Origins-Spectral Interpretation-Resource Identification-Security-Regolith Explorer) during its rendezvous with the asteroid Bennu in September 2016.
- During the mission, a robotic arm will pluck samples that could better explain our solar system’s formation and how life began!
- The spacecraft will reach the asteroid in 2018 and return to Earth in 2023 with approx 60g of material from the asteroid.
