It seems that there is no end to the creative uses for the iconic plastic building bricks that are fond memories for most of us in Generation X, and more painful memories for our Baby Boomer parents who ended up stepping barefoot on many of them because we scattered them liberally around the house.

Now both generations can rejoice; Peter Reid and Tim Goddard have collaborated on a book in which they use LEGOs to recreate some of the most notable events in the history of space exploration.

Not only are the models historically accurate, they've got a quirky, tongue-in-cheek charm to them that makes you wonder, "Now why didn't I think of that?!"
