There’s a time and place for everything – including playing with LEGO building blocks, so what better time and place to build a copy of the International Space Station than when you’re on the International Space Station itself? A Japanese astronaut, Satoshi Furukawa recently did just that when he was on the ISS. He built it in zero-gravity using a glovebox containment enclosure that is usually used for keeping experiments from scattering around the cabin. If you thought building a LEGO model on Earth was hard, wait until you try it out in space! Check out the video above showing off how the model was built.
