Top NASA Executive Who Handles 2024 Moon Landing Mission Resigns”

Fox News Flash top headlines for May 30 are here. But for those times when you're not procrastinating at work, the set also serves as a desk-friendly collectible allowing you to perch and display the lunar lander on an included replica of the moon's surface - complete with craters, footprints, and a USA flag.

CuriosityStream is set to kick off its celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing with the world premiere of the 4K documentary film Return to the Moon. This set has a specific focus on the minifigures - 209 pieces, around $40, 14 LEGO City minifigures: 7 astronauts, a reporter, camera operator, personal trainer, a drone engineer, rocket engineer, a mechanical engineer and a botanist plus a robot figure.

NASA will announce the next major step in the Artemis program's lunar surface exploration plans during a NASA Science Live broadcast at 1 p.m. EDT Friday, May 31.

"We have been champions of the awe and wonder of space exploration through playful building for nearly as long as the world's celebration of the first moon landing", said Michael McNally, senior director of brand relations for Lego Systems. Look closely and you'll see square (LEGO foot shape) footprints left on the lunar surface. "We hope that our ongoing commitment to space-themed play materials will inspire future generations to help us continue exploring".

The descent stage has gold-colored landing pads and panels, laser hatches, and a ladder, while the ascent stage has a detailed interior.

Standing at more than 7 inches high, 8 inches wide, and 7 inches deep, the LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander retails for $100 and launches on June 1. For those interested, you can visit your nearest LEGO store or www.LEGO.com/stores for more details.

NASA had beforehand aimed to return crewed spacecraft to the lunar floor by 2028, after first placing a "Gateway" station into orbit across the moon by 2024.

In June 2018, Aldrin told Fox News that in addition to returning to the Moon, he is pushing for humanity to expand its presence in space, making Mars habitable for mankind.
