Mae Jemison and Sally Ride  

A lego build of a space shuttle with two minifigs in front of it, one representing Sally Ride and the other Mae Jemison

From the Women of NASA Lego set my sister gave me for my birthday. Sally was America's first woman in space and Mae Jemison was the first woman of colour in space. Both went on to careers in Science Communication and Jemison now leads 100 Year Starship - global initiative developing a business plan to foster research into interstellar travel.
