The short-term goal of NASA’s Artemis program is to return humans to the Moon and establish a sustainable presence there by the late 2020s. This will include putting the first woman and person of color on the Moon and developing collaborative partnerships with other nations and private companies to help develop a lunar economy. The long-term goal is to acquire the knowledge and develop the technologies that will be necessary for manned missions to Mars and beyond. That said, the Artemis Space Launch System LEGO set is poised to become quite a collector’s item, so we suggest being ready to grab one when the set launches. 


Next up is The Milky Way Galaxy Set, which is part of the LEGO Art lineup. This super colorful display utilizes 3,091 pieces that will be applied in layers to create a 3D effect with textures that will pop off of your wall. It features some of the Milky Way’s most famous landmarks, including Trappist-1, The Pleiades, The Crab Nebula and The Pillars of Creation. Note that it can be built by as much as 5 people at once using a panel system with individual instruction booklets.
