Do your fingers ever start to go numb just from looking at the amazingly intricate work that some steady-handed artist had the time and dexterity to complete? I had to finish typing that sentence with my nose because these papercraft models are almost too amazing to be real. To kick it off, check out the lunar module from Apollo 13.

Apollo 13 Disaster Unfolds In Real Time In These Archival Videos

fb share tweet share

There’s a very good chance you’re familiar with the nearly tragic events surrounding NASA’s famed Apollo 13 mission, and a slightly lesser chance you’ve watched Ron Howard’s solid (if dramatically overbearing) feature film of the same name, in which an AIDS-ridden Tom Hanks stoically saves the day with a volleyball named Wilson. (It’s been a while since I’ve seen it, so I may have fudged the details.) In any case, there’s no possible way Hollywood could have properly conveyed the severity of the events, regardless of their sound intentions. So now we have the video above, called “As It Happened,” which is the latest in a line of videos on the fabulous lunarmodule5 YouTube page, where the entire Apollo 13 mission, from launch to splashdown, is being archived for easy public consumption. Well, easy assuming you don’t easily freak out listening to would-be disasters as they’re happening.

StarWarsAlright, Nerdparents, the bar has been raised. You may think that you’re oh-so-clever for slapping an adorable Weyland-Yutani onesie on the spawn of your loins — actually, never mind, that sounds awesome. But even so, the simple fact is that you’re going to have to take things up a notch if you hope to compete with Lily and Leon, a creative couple who’ve taken to recreating famous movie moments with household supplies such as cardboard boxes, plates, yarn, plasticware, laundry baskets, and an ever-dwindling supply of time for outside excursions. Oh, and also their leading man, baby Orson.
