In the land of LEGO, everything is possible--even going to space. Well, at least looking like you could go to space.

Builders in Japan have constructed a 65,000-brick LEGO copy of the space shuttle on its launch pad, complete with a mock "launch" that is enhanced with lighting and sound effects.

It took two people 1,590 hours to complete the feat.

This amazing piece is part of a display at the "Nasu Space Center" at the Nasu Highland Park amusement center in Japan. Stats for LEGO Space Shuttles Trending: Older & Average
