LEGO Space Launch game

This is a fun, basic on-line game for those young in years or those young at heart.

In this game, you drag-and-drop LEGO components to create a rudimentary rocket stack. The aim is to attain as high an altitude as you can. Once you attain certain altitudes, you get additional components to build a bigger rocket. Ultimately, you build a space shuttle. Apparently some of the parts will do weird things at about 500 meters; like the rocket turning into a superhero (Jewel nose), or travelling back in time (Magnetoplasma).

There a two difficulty levels: "Junior Lego Naut" and "Lego Naut Pilot". I haven't played the "junior" level much, but the only difference seems to be that it automatically ignites each stage of your rocket during flight.

The URL for this on-line game is :

Why not challenge yourself? After all, it should be easy for a Rocket Scientist... Shouldn't it?

Ciao,
Mike

If you want to go mini size, nanoblock produces lego like kits which are mini size (so not for little kids - only big ones with dexterity and good vision).

My son got this for Christmas today.

I love the Saturn V. Probably my favourite Lego kit.

It has pride of place on top of our Lego cabinet.

I am running out of space, but I guess I could make some room for the Lunar Lander.

What an amazing project.
