Stardust Space Craft plansFree Stardust Space Craft plans - This free model is designed for anyone who wishes to learn more about the Stardust Spacecraft, although it is probably not appropriate for children less than about ten years of age to build unassisted. It has all of Stardusts major components, and shows both its scientific instruments. You will see first hand how the spacecraft shields itself from fast-flying comet debris. That is an assembled one in the photograph on the right. Stardust, like all interplanetary spacecraft, was designed for high structural strength, minimizing mass. That makes it possible to reproduce its mechanical design with remarkably good fidelity, using only paper! The image at right shows the paper model assembled from pages which you can download. Its scale is about 1/26.
