Lego Ideas Lego announced on Wednesday that it's releasing a"Women of NASA set

Starting on November 1, space fans of all ages will be able to buy Lego's Women of NASA set featuring four essential women who made space science history.

The idea was first proposed by Maia Weinstock, a deputy editor at MIT News, in 2016.

If elements within the Trump administration are at odds, the messages coming out of Europe are also confusing. Exploding a nuclear warhead over the Pacific would likely be a step too far for the global community.

Lego is honoring the women of Hidden Figures while releasing its latest product created to foster interest in STEM careers. If you are in the NYC area the set will be available at the Flatiron District LEGO Store on October 28, 2017.

On the ground, Dion Lewis rushed for 53 yards in seven carries while Mike Gillislee added 52 yards in 12 attempts. McCown got off to a booming start, staking the Jets to a 14-0 lead with a pair of first-half touchdown passes.

However, the lack of transparency surrounding the reason behind why she was nixed from this set in the first place gives the disheartening impression that whoever had the power to give approval didn't think Johnson's contributions were worthy of recognition, thus keeping her efforts and work "hidden".

The 231-piece set will be on sale on 1 November in the U.S., with a recommended selling price of $24.99. The figures to be included in the set will consist of Nancy Grace Roman, Margaret Hamilton, Sally Ride and Mae Jemison. The women each come with pieces for a small platform and structures that represent the work they did with NASA. Roman, nicknamed the "Mother of Hubble" for getting the telescope into orbit, is paired with it in her 1959 likeness, and a 1969-era Hamilton, who led the development of the software necessary to launch the Apollo moon missions, is accompanied by a chalkboard and stack of books. "What they have achieved is truly inspiring to me, and I hope it will inspire children to make their dreams come true".
