When NASA’s Juno probe leaves Earth this Friday for Jupiter, there will be three very special aluminum friends hopping a ride. This just in: NASA is sending a probe to Jupiter this Friday.

I asked you guys to do something nice for a stranger and damn if you didn’t come through. I figured he get a handful of “keep it ups.” Yesterday the first attempt at a lego movie had 19 views and 1 comment that said “thet sucked.” Today, it has 18,231 views and 1,483 supportive comments. I knew you guys were awesome, I just didn’t realize you were THAT awesome. Here’s a note from his dad: On behalf of my son, thanks to all the Redditors who sent words of encouragement. You should have seen his face light up when I told him about the comments. As we read the comments together, he just kept getting more excited. Thanks for making his (and my) day! And a thank you from his son (although he should probably stick to lego movies). It’s things like this that make me proud to be a part of this community. Thanks Reddit.

YouTube user “horseattack” has shared this video of a Lego printer that he designed, built, and coded all from scratch. While the printer certainly dwarfs the Lego creations we constructed in childhood, we’re not sure it’s faster than our HP Laserjet. In any case, we would love to have the “Lego felt tip 110″ in our office, just for bragging rights.
Could this mean the end of overpriced printer ink? Plus, this is way more interesting to watch then your ordinary printer. Watch Video ›

I once spent 8 hours putting together a Millenium Falcon lego set. It was worth it and it is awsome. I don’t know how long this would take to put together, but I don’t think I have that much vacation time. (Via Turtlefeed) View Image ›
