Space: 1969

In July 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins were the pioneers on Man’s first landing on the soil of another world.  This year it is fifty years since their historic achievement, and to mark the anniversary and pay our own tribute, we are holding a building competition.  Build anything you like, with the theme of ‘space’, email it here (admin@nblug.org.uk) and we’ll enter it in the competition.  What will you build?

Update 20th July:  voting is now complete, and the winner is Matt’s Spacehopper.  Congratulations Matt!
