We did it! Jimmy Coggins, an adjudicator for Guinness World Records, conferred with the measurement experts and tells us that we've set our 10th Guinness World Records title. With your help, we created the world’s largest toilet-paper-roll-tube sculpture ... in the shape of a rocket. The rocket was made up of 20,241 toilet-paper-roll tubes and reached over 24 feet tall, but the record was based on volume: 12.73 cubic meters, or 449.56 cubic feet.

Flip though the gallery of photos taken at Nat Geo headquarters in Washington, D.C., where the rocket was on display.
