LEGO in space

LEGO Education, a division of the company that makes the popular Mindstorms line of robots, will send 13 LEGO Education models to the International Space Station (ISS) on board the Space Shuttle Endeavor.
Onboard the ISS, the astronauts will explore the effects of microgravity on simple machines by building models, conducting experiments, and sharing those results with students and teachers back on Earth through video and crew commentary.
How cool is that! Sounds like lots of fun for both the students and the astronauts. More on this site.
