Andreas Mogensen, who was launched to the International Space Station last week, is officially the first Danish man to head into outer space – but he wasn’t alone. Mogensen shared his spotlight with 20 specially designed LEGO figures, who each bore the European Space Agency Logo on their chests. I can’t believe a mini-fig travelled to space before me. HMPF.
When the toys return to Earth on 11th September, they will be presented as prizes to the school children who took part in a competition to create a short movie using LEGO, about the European Space Agency. Lucky sods.
