LEGO continues to celebrate women in the STEM fields with Women of NASA

Some time ago, we told you about the LEGO Research Institute set, which featured women working as a chemist, an astronomer, and a paleontologist.  This time, LEGO is featuring the Women of NASA.  The set features four women in three settings; LEGO introduces the four as:

  • Nancy Grace Roman’s build features a posable Hubble Space Telescope with authentic details and a projected image of a planetary nebula.
  • Margaret Hamilton’s build features a stack of book elements, representing the books of listings of Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) onboard flight software source code.
  • Sally Ride and Mae Jemison’s build features a launchpad and Space Shuttle Challenger with 3 removable rocket stages.

The Women of NASA kit has 231 pieces, and it includes a booklet about the four featured women.  It’s $24.99 from LEGO.
