Lego Set Features NASA Women Stars

In 1925, when astronomer Nancy Grace Roman was born, “The Great Gatsby” had just been published and outer space was still a giant mystery waiting to be explored. But Nancy who turned 92 this week, showed an interest in the stars from an early age, and became the first chief of astronomy in the Office of Space Science at NASA and the first woman to hold an executive position at NASA. Nancy is one of the five women honored with her own Lego figurine in the forthcoming Women of NASA set. The other four are Katherine Johnson, one of the scientists featured in the film “Hidden Figures,” computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, astronaut Sally Ride and astronaut Mae Jemison. Release date and price have not yet been revealed for the Lego figures and set…….Ed
