Lego's 'Women Of NASA' Space Set Is Officially Coming To A Store Near You

By Omar Rimawi

Lego is finally featuring a set around heroes that exist in the real world. The winner of Lego Ideas, a biannual contest held by the company that pits fan submissions against each other, eventually putting the winning design in production, is Maia Weinstock and her Women of NASA submission, featuring 5 women who have played key roles in the organization's history.

We're guessing the success of Hidden Figures—based on the true story of how black women helped make the crucial calculations necessary to facilitate the U.S. moon landing—had something to do with the decision, or maybe the fact that women of NASA are overdue for some love.
