People in Space - New Projects for Rockets and Space Travel

One bright spot upon our return was seeing that some of our old favorites were still active. We found as well that SHIPtember was still a thing - the annual event to build a "SHIP," a spaceship over 100 studs long. Now that it is ROCKtober, it's time to look at what was produced.

The future is bright - Part 1 Hybris
We start with something straight out of our childhood, an O'Neill cylinder. Ralf Langer promises more photos, but we are content as-is, with detail shrinking into the vanishing point.

Xylethrus AMV-1
Next is the Xylethrus, a black spindly creature with a must ingenious use of the fishing pole. We cannot find anything to establish a scale to the thing (take, in contrast, this colony ship with a decedent to our space shuttle for reference), which is a slight knock against it, but nothing to get strung out over.

Celestial Barracuda
The Celestial Barracuda is absurd in all the right places - on its own its good, but the collection of suits and ships make it complete, suggesting that it exists in a diverse ecosystem.

MOTH - Front
Finally, the timeless MOTH - we think it might be the blue glass cockpit that suggests an earlier era of LEGO construction. It is without gimmicks or frills, but will last a lifetime.
