When the Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team sets out to make the Range Rover even more unique you can bet they’re gonna create something absurd. Their latest, the Range Rover Astronaut Edition, is the perfect example of what’s possible. Designed and built exclusively for the “Future Astronauts” already signed up to travel to space with Virgin Galactic, the Range Rover Astronaut takes everything that makes the Range Rover Autobiography noteworthy and makes it better. Unique Zero Gravity Blue paint inspired by the depth and intensity night sky. Bespoke Virgin Galactic puddle lamp design that features the silhouette of SpaceShipTwo. Virgin Galactic touches are also throughout the interior with unique badges, stitching and carbon fiber detailing. But the pièce de résistance is in the cup holders. Seriously. The discs inside the cup holders are made with pieces of the front landing skid from Virgin Spaceship Unity. What’s more, according to Land Rover, “Once a Future Astronaut has flown to space, and becomes an astronaut, this [disc] will be swapped out with part of the wooden skid from that customer’s own spaceflight, personally inscribed with the specific details of a life changing experience.” That’s right. A piece of your spaceship will be in your very own, very limited Range Rover. This all of course assumes you’re already on the list for the hundreds of thousands of dollars spaceflight, and you’re we’re willing to drop another couple hundred thousand on another vehicle.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
