Lego‘s latest fan-designed collectible set is a team of five female NASA scientists.

Lego accepts idea proposals from fans every year, creating a shortlist of options based on support from the internet. The latest winner is a “Women of NASA” set designed by Maia Weinstock, featuring Lego minifigures of astronauts Mae Jemison and Sally Ride, astronomer Nancy Grace Roman, computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, and mathematician Katherine Johnson.

The Women of NASA set will now officially go into production, including the minifigures and several space-related additions like rockets, telescopes, and laboratory equipment.
