The desk includes dozens of buttons, knobs, switches and more than 500 LED lights, allowing his son to blast off homework boredom.

The one-of-a-kind control console closes up and works as a regular homework desk when it’s not in use.

The desk also incorporated an iPad with real audio clips from the Apollo 11 Mission.
