Women of NASA on LEGO Ideas - Sally Ride with space shuttle orbiter

This vignette of Sally Ride is part of "Women of NASA," a project on the LEGO Ideas contest celebrating five pioneering women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Vote to make this a real LEGO set: ideas.lego.com/projects/147876

 

Sally Ride, astronaut, physicist, and educator: A physicist by training, Ride became the first American woman in space in 1983. After retiring as a NASA astronaut, she founded an educational company focusing on encouraging children — especially girls — to pursue the sciences.

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