Women of NASA on LEGO Ideas - Katherine Johnson

Ladies rock outer space! Vote to make this a real LEGO set: ideas.lego.com/projects/147876

 

This vignette of Katherine Johnson is part of "Women of NASA," a project on the LEGO Ideas contest celebrating five pioneering women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Johnson, a mathematician and space scientist, was a longtime NASA researcher who is best known for calculating and verifying trajectories for the Mercury and Apollo programs — including the Apollo 11 mission that first landed humans on the moon. She is a 2016 recipient of the U.S. Medal of Honor, the highest recognition given to American civilians.

 

If this project receives 10,000 votes, you could soon buy one at a LEGO store near you!

 

The full Women of NASA set includes four additional minifigures — of Sally Ride, Mae Jemison, Margaret Hamilton, and Nancy Grace Roman — plus vignettes including a microscale Hubble Space Telescope, space shuttle, and replica of a famous photo showing the code that got astronauts to the moon.
