NASA is launching LEGOs into space.

The Juno spacecraft that launched on Aug. 5, 2011, carries 3 LEGO figurines and is en route to the planet Jupiter. Naturally, the three LEGO figurines are Galileo Galilei, the man who discovered many of Jupiter’s moons; the Roman god Jupiter, the planet’s namesake; and Jupiter’s wife, Juno, the spacecraft’s namesake. NASA and the LEGO Group are collaborating on this project to try to raise interest in science among children.
