LEGOs in Space!

The Space Shuttle Endeavor took off yesterday morning with some special cargo - worms, squid embryos...and LEGOs.
According to NASA, "The construction process and activities with the sets will demonstrate the challenges faced when building things in the microgravity environment of space."

This partnership program plans to inspire kids across the nation by sending sets to classrooms and allowing them to compare results with those achieved by astronauts on the space station.
