I recently read about a Romanian man who decided to send a Lego model of a U.S. space shuttle into space. The video is stunning — particularly when you consider that this was done by an amateur, using stuff that pretty much any civilian can purchase. The Brooklyn Space Program has made similar efforts, but I am biased toward the work of Raul Oaida.
I so want to send something into space now. Too bad the FAA doesn’t like us to do that. Hmmm … what are the rules in Canada?
