Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Educational Set I 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly play worthy I 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.
