Plywood Lunar Rover and Voyager by Peter Hennessey

Australian artist Peter Hennessey turned plain ol' plywood into amazing works of art. I'm sure you can draw all sorts of inference from his re-creation of high-tech spacecrafts using the simplest of all material (wood - plywood at that), but don't let that detract you from enjoying his masterpieces:

My Lunar Rover (2005)

Trivia for you: the Lunar Rover AKA Moon Buggy was built by GM. It worked beautifully for Apollo 15 mission, but during the next mission, in a true GM moment, the rover's rear fender fell off. Astronauts had to make an emergency repair with duct tape, maps, and clamps. (See: 10 Things You Didn't Know About General Motors)

My Voyager (2004)
