Float into Outer Space with a NASA Space Shuttle

Build a shuttle that will fly you towards incredible adventures while seemingly floating in midair! The 220+ piece shuttle floats due to the tensegrity effect, creating an optical illusion thanks to a principle of physics. Follow the illustrated manual or free downloadable app to piece together the interchangeable components.

The doors open to reveal the payload bay and Canadarm which is the robotic arm used by astronauts in outer space. Adjust the pieces such as the ailerons that rise and fall and be amazed by the suspended space shuttle model. Measures approx 15.6" x 10.9 " x 2.4". No batteries are required. For ages 8+.

What is tensegrity? 

Tensegrity or tensional integrity is a structural principle that occurs when a set of compression elements is opposed but also balanced by a continuous force that stabilizes the entire structure.
