LEGO teams with NASA on mission to Jupiter

LEGO have created three, specially commissioned, figurines which are traveling onboard a NASA space probe to Jupiter. The figures are composed of aluminum and each cost around $5,000 and the manufacturing process was carefully considered so that they wouldn't interfere with any of the spacecraft's sensitive measurements and equipment. The figurines have been affixed to the probe (Juno, expected to arrive on Juptier in July 2016) and have been designed to represent the Italian Astronomer Galileo Galilei, the Roman God Juptier and the Roman Goddess Juno.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
