LEGO® laser guide stars

Adjustments are made to the LEGO® model of the Unit Telescope 4 of ESO's Very Large Telescope. Designed by Dutch astronomer Frans Snik, the model of the Paranal platform comprises the VLT telescopes and their dome structures, as well as all of the instruments used on the real VLT. It even includes — as visible in this video — the four laser guide stars of the Unit Telescope 4.
