Venturi-Mission-03-Electric-Antarctic-Rover

Funny, we’ve been looking for a new vehicle to get through this winter, and we think we’ve found it in the Venturi Mission 03 Electric Antarctic Rover. Like a life-sized LEGO Technic creation, the Antarctic Rover isn’t just meant to handle harsh and perpetually subzero environmnents, it does so by being green so as to keep its protected surroundings pollution-free. It was created by Venturi, known for its electric race cars, and it uses battery technology that’s more advanced to handle the brutal climes. 2x60kW battery packs give it a near 28-mile range on a single charge, and it can reach speeds of 12-15.5 mph while carrying up to 3 people, as well as payload. As cool as it looks, the notion that an Antarctic research vehicle should be consistent in its environmental impact as it the research its passengers perform is the most brilliant aspect of its creation.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
