Lego sets release date for Women of NASA sets

LEGO Ideas 21312 Women of NASA unveiled [News]

Lego has just given us our first look at its Women of NASA set - and it's the ideal celebration of some of America's trailblazing female scientists and astronauts.

The set is the brainchild of Maia Weinstock, an MIT employee who proposed a women of NASA collection through the Lego Ideas program.

They include Nancy Grace Roman, an astronomer who helped develop the Hubble Space Telescope; Margaret Hamilton, a computer scientist who led development of onboard flight software for Apollo missions; Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; and Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space. That set was designed by geoscientist Dr. Ellen Kooijman and received praise for placing women in professional STEM roles, something that is still regrettably rare in most other Lego sets. Johnson was left out because she apparently chose not to be part of the set. "With this project, I wanted to spotlight a fantastic group of women who have made seminal contributions to NASA history".

The final design of the Minifigures and set was done by LEGO designers Tara Wike and Gemma Anderson.

Katherine Johnson, a mathematician and scientist whose story is told in the Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures, was originally slated to appear in the Lego set, too.

The 231-piece set will include all four women as figurines, as well as a posable Hubble Space Telescope and launchpad with Space Shuttle Challenger.

"Weinstock tweeted on Wednesday that she's extremely proud to know the final product will help children and adults learn about some of the pioneering scientists and engineers who helped make the USA space program what it is today".
