Copernicus School Bus
A space school bus. Even in space you must learn. Boo!
About this creation
This a Copernicus High School Bus for transporting kids to and from the Copernicus Crater High School on the moon. One of these buses would be involved in the famous 'Copernicus Incident' that led to the moons independence.

Of course I've seen many people recently commenting that things like this - a 'bus' or a 'car' in space is apparently not Science Fiction, not 'space', it's only 'futuristic'. Obviously there are a few people out there who need an education in Science Fiction, Robert Heinlein's first novel from 1939 featured flying cars, Arther C. Clarkes 'Fall of Moondust' from 1961 featured a moon tour bus called the Selene involved in a disaster, then there's Blade Runner and Fifth Element both had amazing flying vehicles developed from the look of modern cars. It's always been a part of Science Fiction to extrapolate the vehicles of today into space and the future, and even if you hate it, it's not going away.
So hopefully you like my Sci-Fi space bus, but if not I cut it in half in my disaster diorama anyway.




























Hail to the bus driver man:

It remindes me of the LoM Solar Explorer

when I was in high school, we would always go to the back door of the bus and moon our classmates who were unlucky enough to get behind the bus in their own vehicle. But how does one "moon" someone when they're already on the moon? Would the phrase "earthing somebody" eventually get coined?

Please make an excuse to make this a set! You could call it "Schoolbus Ambush" or "Schoolbus scramble" with a driver, two aliens, a passenger, and a space police officer! if not could you at least make a fake picture to look like it's real?

Outstanding. What more can I say? I love the cockpit, the concept is extremely original and the colors are perfect. There would be a lot to be said for a "Space Town" official theme...

Usually I go to school by train. But I would prefer using your bus. Maybe I´ll take it tomorrow.

Ya know, I've been itchy to work in yellow, and this is just killin' me. Great build! Love the back section (I was always one of those back-of-the-bus kids anyway). Love the opening on the underside,too...I mean, what bus driver wouldn't want a door that sucks those snot-nosed punks out into the cold vacuum of space?

Great use of the dump bucket things!

AHH! This is complete and utter awesomesauce. I love the cockpit, it looks very much like the fronts of modern buses nowadays. I'm not sure if that was intentional, but nonetheless this is a prime example of Sci-Fi at its best.

A interesting idea, I like the use of the excavator scooper things on the engines.

Neat build, I dig the piece usage!

:D *drools* Nice use of bulldozer shovels BTW. ;P

I think I commented on this over at CSF; you blew it in half, didn't you? Very nice, with a rather interesting cockpit shape. Certainly better than anythin I could do, as spacecraft are not exactly my field of expertise.

That's one lucky (yet unlucky seeing's how what happens next) bus driver to fly one of these. This model is fantastic! Great work, i love all the windows! ~Danny

reminds me of classic sci-fi ships, but in a "No mom, I don't wanna go to school today!" way.

I really like this one. You've got the stop-sign and everything! Very cool.
