Lego Ideas Lego announced on Wednesday that it's releasing a"Women of NASA set

Lego is launching a set of mini-figures to celebrate the Women of NASA.

A new LEGO set honoring the pioneering women of NASA, including Chicago native Mae Jemison, will go on sale November 1.

The final kit includes all but Katherine Johnson, which Lego says is only because it requires approval from all involved, and apparently there was some hiccup in gaining approval from Johnson and her family at this time.

1010 WINS-The newest LEGO sets are out of this world! The astronauts - Jemison, who went into space in 1992, and Ride in 1983 - will each come with space shuttles with removable rocket boosters and orange fuel tanks modeled after the real thing. Sally Ride, astronaut, physicist, and educator. Weinstock originally submitted the concept to Lego's Ideas crowdsourcing platform, where the pitch quickly garnered widespread support among Lego's most diehard fans - and now, what was once a remarkably good idea is about to become reality.

Lego is honoring the women of the film Hidden Figures while releasing its latest product created to foster interest in STEM careers.

We can be really focused on this one. "We have a couple of players more here, but it's the same squad [as for United] plus a few more players here".

"In all realms of science, engineering, and technology, pioneering women have historically been underappreciated for their often groundbreaking work", said Weinstock in a statement.

The set also includes a booklet about the four featured women of NASA, the fan creator, and the professional LEGO designers who collaborated on the set.

“It was a great experience to give these unbelievable women their new LEGO identity and a great honor to personally present Margaret Hamilton with her very own Minifigure, ” said LEGO Design Manager Tara Wike.

"For the vignettes, I wanted to contextualise each person in terms of her contribution to NASA history".

Margaret Hamiltons build features a stack of book elements, representing the books of listings of Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) onboard flight software source code.
