Three custom aluminum LEGO figurines will be aboard NASA’s Juno space probe, which is scheduled to begin its five year journey to Jupiter tomorrow. The figurines depict astronomer Galileo, the Roman god Jupiter, and goddess Juno. They are aboard the spacecraft thanks to a joint effort by LEGO and NASA to encourage children to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
