Cool.

Just one thought - it would have been a pain in the arse to make it up there coz all the bits would go floating off unless nailed down...

According to the article, the MoC, much like the real ISS, had to be built in space because it would fall apart under normal gravity.

I believe that, I mean, look at it. That thing would die faster than Steve Irwin in a tank full of stingrays if it were in normal gravity down on Earth.

Two words: Super Glue (or Crazy Glue in the States).

Yeah I know I have just advocated extreme Lego blasphemy, but for a permanent model like that, needs must as the devil drives...

How much do you think it cost to ship all those bricks up there?
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Thankfully, there's a reduced chance that someone will step on it whilst going to the loo in the middle of the night. Not that it would you would wake anyone up if you did because in space, no-one can hear you scream (when you step on lego). :rtfm:

We have super glue in the states. And gluing make sense for permanent models. This, however, was disassembled.
