The Story of Hinode

This is a highly accurate documentary of the entire Hinode mission, from the original idea through launch.

Kidding! But this is a pretty great interpretation of the events as told by a group of Lego scientists. We may have taken a few creative liberties with the events (it took a little bit longer to build in real life), but it captures the spirit nicely.

If you would like to build your own Lego model, you can download the instructions here. Also, don't forget to check out (and 'Like!') the XRT Facebook page. The video and build instructions are posted there as well.
