Lego Creation: NASA Curiosity Rover


Before NASA’s Curiosity Rover lifted off for Mars last fall, one of the engineers who built the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) spacecraft attempted to convince LEGO to produce a toy version of the six-wheeled rover. Eight months later, the real rover has safely touched down in the Gale Crater, but Stephen Pakbaz’s brick-built Curiosity has yet to land on toy store shelves. You can, however, now build his model, using these do-it-yourself instructions. All you'll need is 313 pieces.  There are 38 steps to assembling theme included in the 46-page instruction manual.
