In 1978, Lego released the first kits in his line of space toys, nearly a decade after Apollo 11 landed on the moon for the first time. Since then, the company has consistently launched kits including spacecraft, astronauts and lunar bases, including detailed kits that draw on hardware from real space missions. and his colleagues recently visited engineers and NASA staff to compare their toys with the real spacecraft, the Rivers and the space stations they are currently working on. "In the whole company, space is such a great theme that we can get involved in it in many different ways, whether it's a toy like Lego City, or a display model that fits into the subtle details of spacecraft design," as recently issued Apollo 1
"Cosmos is a theme or theme that appeals to both children and adults," explains Kent, "there is always a need for such toys that cause this interest." He noted that over the last four decades, Lego has explored many corners of the universe, from more fantastic alien, space police, or Martian colonists, to some of the more realistic scenarios for which he and his team are responsible for the sets of Lego City.
He says that in 2019 they continue in this tradition "with a more realistic picture of what the space agencies like NASA are. The company's latest releases include some pretty realistic views: there is a space rocket and mission control, modular space station, space shuttle, rover, and more. These kits are not exactly what NASA and various private companies are currently offering. There is "a kind of artistic turn that we tend to put on those topics where we do not want to focus on the past; we want to be up to date in the future. So we are looking for what can be put into space in the next few years. "
The kit design began with a schedule of what might happen over the next few years, and what vehicles are there and building something like that. Kent says they want to "support the stories the children hear at school or in the media about space agencies such as NASA, SpaceX, the European space agency." Kent and his team recently went to NASA to gather inspiration. for their latest and upcoming kits to review its facilities and some of the projects on which they work. "The irony is that the things we thought pushed the distant future too far when we saw what they were exploring, we were surprised that they were already doing a lot of that."
