Solar Probe Plus LEGO Model

Pictured is the winner of NASA's LEGO building competition, the Sunbeam by HOSHPUP (the builders alias on LEGO's ReBrick site).  This is a artistic interpretation of NASA's Solar Probe Plus, which will launch in 2018. I've only found conceptual drawings of the probe, the rockets may be HOSHPUP's creation. In any event, it looks a lot better with rockets attached!  Some other references include: Solar Probe Plus on Wikipediaall the contest winners on ReBrick. Hat tip to Space for All for finding this item.
