Out of this world set!This is such a great little set! I knew I wanted to buy it the moment I saw the recreation of Margaret Hamilton's iconic photograph with the huge stack of code. It's a simple idea, but executed very well and looks great on my shelves.
The inclusion of the brilliant Mae Jemison (and the tiny shuttle) made this a must-have. It's absolutely fantastic to see Lego honouring the women of NASA in this way.
I missed out on the Research Institute, but this set will let me put female scientists in all my scenes, and I couldn't be happier.
The NASA theme aside, if you're looking for a variety of female minifig parts, this set is great value. Most of my other sets are overwhelmingly male, so I'm really excited to be able to widen the number of women in my collection--including a woman of colour! Thank you Lego! It really is thrilling to see sets like this. Long may it continue!

Surprisingly play worthyI debated for several months about building this or leaving the pieces sealed in the box. I was expecting each set to be in its own plastic bag. They are not. It’s an all or nothing build.
They were easy to assemble, and have great play value, being additions to school scenes or explorations.

Very Educational SetI am actually glad that LEGO made this set. As a long-time astronomy fan, I find this set very fun and educational. There are many female scientists who have made excellent contributions to science and technology, or even played a key role in the development of science, but are often ignored or not well-known (as for me, I actually don't know about Margaret Hamilton and Nancy G. Roman until this set came out). It is good that LEGO made this to honor these female scientists for their contributions. As for the build itself, I especially love the space shuttle and the Hubble Space Telescope, and I really think LEGO designers have captured the essence of the two spacecrafts. The four minifigures have very nice and unique torso prints as well. Overall, I highly recommend this set if you are passionate about science or astronomy.

This will go great with the Saturn VThis is a great little set, build only took me roughly half an hour however the build was a lot more fun then I expected it to be, in this set you get three separate small builds and four mini figures Margaret Hamilton, Mae Jamison, Sally Ride and Nancy G. Roman.
The first build is of Margaret Hamilton and its of a black board with printed diagrams and a stack of books, you also get a small build
for a coat stand, this is probably the most simple of the three builds but still looks very cool.
The next build is of a small scale space shuttle, this stand includes Mae Jemison and Sally Ride, this is probably the most in depth build of the set and is so much fun to make, the shuttle also can be separated similar to the Saturn V set, a really cool little build to have.
The final build is of Nancy G. Roman which includes a small build of a satellite and a printed piece which represents the planatery nebula which is again a very cool printed piece to own.
The cool thing with this set which is the same as most of the Lego Ideas sets is that there are no stickers in this set and you get some really cool printed pieces, you get four really cool mini figures which also have very unique printing which you aren't going to get in any other sets. I will be putting this set with my Saturn V which will look awesome!
The build is very fun and very easy so it is suitable for kids, this is the sort of set which will appeal to all ages as it is very cool, fun and also educational, you get the instruction manual which has information about each of the women of NASA included in this set and tells you about everything which was accomplished.
I think for the price this is definitely good value for money and would highly recommend this to anyone!
