Two LEGO® astronauts traveled across the universe to drop in on the National Space Centre in celebration of International Lego Day. On their visit, these space engineers took selfies with The Big Dish, our 32-meter astro antenna, and made time for a tour of our gallery of moon rocks and space junk.


Most importantly, they visited NSC’s Control Room to scale the heights of The Big Dish’s internal scaffold and hydraulic system and undertake emergency repairs on Satellite 30365. Unlike the other dishes on site, which range from 32 to 6 meters and are regularly maintained by our engineering team, Satellite 30365 measures in at only 7.63cm and requires specialist tools and appropriately scaled expertise.

Congratulations to the team on the successful completion of this critical mission!
