Help to build your own Pluto spacecraft
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is speeding quickly toward the first flyby of Pluto and its moons - nearing the destination on a voyage that has already captured the imaginations of millions and shown what perseverance and creativity can do.
The real New Horizons - developed at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland - is about the size and shape of a grand piano. But you might be able to own a smaller version, thanks to an effort to create a LEGO model of the spacecraft. If enough votes are cast at http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/44093, space exploration fans of all ages will have the chance to enjoy their very own model of the fastest spacecraft ever launched.
