The mission of the Brick Space Agency is to showcase all the amazing LEGO space models and their creators. Discover, build, and share your own fleet of rockets, launch vehicles, spacecraft, and space stations!
American manned spaceplane used for hypersonic research. Conducted tests for ballistic flight, winged reentry, and gliding recovery. The X-15 was intended to evolve to a manned orbital spacecraft until the urgent need for the Mercury and Gemini programs surfaced. Research from the X-15 eventually led to the techniques...
Long March 5 (CZ-5)
Heavy Lift launch vehicle developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology. First to use non-hypergolic liquid fuels. As of 2021 it is the 3rd most powerful launch vehicle.

Four stage rocket derived from the Jupiter-C sounding rocket. After the "Sputnik Crisis" and the failure of the Vanguard program, a Juno I rocket was used to launch America's first satellite, Explorer 1.
James Webb Space Telescope
Titan III configuration launched four times to test the Titan transtage and later incorporated as the core stage for the Titan IIIC.
A-4 / V-2 Rocket with Support and Supply Vehicles
The Aggregat 4 (A-4), later renamed the V-2 for Vengeance Weapon 2, was the world's first long range missile and the first to pass the Karman line reaching 'space'. Much of the development team went on to help develop rocket programs for both...
