How do you get your groceries delivered when you live on a space station? Later this year, it will be via the Cygnus unmanned spacecraft, developed by Orbital Sciences Corporation as part of NASA’s program to outsource operations to commercial companies. Once the new supplies are unloaded, Cygnus will be loaded up with the station’s trash and sent to burn up in the atmosphere, making it the world’s most expensive incinerator and further proving that everything which goes up must come down. 

These wooden toys bring the amazing machines behind today’s world into your home. For everyone who ever sighed at the site of a container ship or swooned over a satellite : these toys are for you.  

Not a children's toy; contains small parts. Age 12+. Wood with metal parts (in some products).  Approx. 5" at max when assembled.
