Women of NASA on LEGO Ideas - Nancy Grace Roman "Mother of Hubble"

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

 

This vignette of astronomer Nancy Grace Roman is part of "Women of NASA," a project on the LEGO Ideas contest celebrating five pioneering women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Roman is known to many as the "Mother of Hubble" for her role in planning the Hubble Space Telescope, seen here. One of the first female executives at NASA, she also developed NASA's astronomy research program.

 

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, Katherine Johnson, and Margaret Hamilton — plus vignettes including a mini space shuttle, instruments of the Apollo era, and a recreation of a famous photo depicting the reams of code that sent humans to the moon.
