LEGO is creating a brand new set complete with minifigures modeled after four of NASA’s finest. Astronauts Sally Ride and Mae Jemison, astronomer Nancy Grace Roman and computer scientist Margaret Hamilton will all be celebrated with this new LEGO collection.

The set will also include a model of the spacecraft and the settings where the four women made history with their work. LEGO released a statement today announcing the new set.

“Great for role playing space exploration missions,” the statement said. “Explore the professions of some of the groundbreaking women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with the Lego Ideas Women of NASA set.”

The 231-piece collection will retail for $24.99 when it becomes available in stores November 1.
