We heard back in March that Lego would make a “Women of NASA” set, which was submitted to the Lego Ideas competition and now, the set is finally ready. And guess what?It looks pretty awesome.It will be released on November 1st for $25.
The set celebrates the women of NASA and contains four different figures: Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, and Mae Jemison, the first woman of color in space. Then there’s Margaret Hamilton, who led the team that developed the software for NASA’s Apollo missions and Nancy Grace Roman, who helped bring the vision of the Hubble Space Telescope to life. Each of them is an American hero and it is good to know that kids can now play with some toys based on them. Girls will especially love it and who knows, it might even get them involved in the sciences. One day your daughter might even run NASA after playing with this set. Fans of our space program are going to love this set.
It is a great way to honor the contributions of these women to the US space program. LEGO did a great job on this one. They will look great displayed.
