It's a rocket. Made of cookies. Gingerbread engineer Matt Baker sent io9 this incredible picture of his 1/109 scale model of the Saturn V rocket (here you can see a side-by-side comparison — click to enlarge). "I'm a big NASA fan," he explained via email. "Now if I could just find some tiny gingernauts." Even without a crew, this looks like the tastiest space vessel ever constructed at such precise scale.

The candy cane is a nice touch, too, Matt.
