Lego is releasing a "Women of NASA" set!

Just in time for Women's History Month, Lego has announced a special "Women of NASA" set featuring real-life NASA heroes! We have pictures and details!

ABC News reports on this fantastic educational set.
The idea is the brainchild of Maia Weinstock, a science writer and editor, who submitted to Lego that the company should highlight the efforts of a number of prominent women.
The announced set includes mathematician and NASA trajectory expert Katherine Johnson, whom Taraji P. Henson played in "Hidden Figures." Also featured are Margaret Hamilton, an MIT computer scientist who developed the flight software for the Apollo craft; Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; astronaut and physicist Nancy Grace Roman; and Mae Jemison, an entrepreneur, an astronaut and a doctor who was the first African-American woman in space.
Here are pictures of the figures included in the set and their accessories.

No release date for the Lego set has been announced.
