LEGO NASA’s Missions: Imagine and Build Contest Winners

Back in June, we reported there was a LEGO contest called NASA’s Missions: Imagine and Build happening on ReBrick in conjunction with the space agency.

The winner of the “Imagine Our Future Beyond Earth” contest was the “Sunbeam,” created by Jay Semlis from England. The satellite is used to look at the outer cornea of the sun. There were also two runner up winners including “The ORACOM” by Sergio Parra from the United States which is a Mars spacecraft and the “Asteroid Initiative” by Peter Hollander also from the United States which is used to pick up and move asteroids.

NASA’s associate administrator for education Leland Melvin says, “Our intention was to unleash everyone’s creativity and inspire participants to combine real NASA research with imaginative flights of fancy. Looking at the winning designs, it’s clear we did just that.”

The grand prize winner of the contest received the LEGO CUUSOO Hayabusa (21101) set, signed by the LEGO designer Melody Louise Caddick, recognition and honorable mention on NASA.gov, and a collection of NASA memorabilia including a personalized signed lithograph from Melvin.

There was also another contest called the “Inventing the Future of Flight” to create a prototype of a future aircraft as well as writing a technical paper to explain the model and how it is taking NASA’s ideas and improves on them. The winning model for the younger builders category was the “Flying Extinguisher 4000 Fish Eagle” created by 16 year old William Nodvik from the United States which is a long range supertanker that puts out wildfires.

The overall winner for the “Inventing the Future of Flight” was the “Hydrogen Powered Regional Airliner” by Claes Sundstrom from Sweden. The model is a hybrid wing body and hydrogen fueled, turboelectric engines and is used to cut down on noise, fuel usage, and emissions. Winners received a LEGO Trophy, a collection of commemorative NASA memorabilia, and got to do a virtual presentation of project to NASA and/or LEGO specialists.
