A Detailed Space Shuttle
Among the changes were Ride’s outfit, which became the blue suit Ride wore on the ISS, and the much greater detail added to the mini space shuttle Challenger model.
A Poseable Telescope
Lego designers Wike and Anderson also added more detail to the Hubble Telescope model included in Roman’s build. They made the telescope poseable, so those playing with the set can image pointing Hubble toward a must-capture image in space.
Science editor Maia Weinstock dreamed up the Women of NASA Lego set, and submitted the proposal to Lego Ideas. It took only about two weeks for the project to get the 10,000 votes Lego requires to consider actually building a fan-submitted idea. At a Lego store pre-launch, four days before the set officially went on sale, Weinstock told Space.com that she was thrilled to see so many people excited to see her dream come to life.
