Weinstock's proposed set also included famed NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, but in a statement to The Verge, the company said that "In order for us to move forward with a partner we need to obtain approval from all key people which was not possible in this case. We have also seen that when girls and women are given more encouragement in the STEM fields, they become more likely to pursue careers in these areas", said Weinstock. Katherine Johnson, the NASA mathematician and Presidential Medal of Freedom award victor who inspired the Oscar-nominated film, "Hidden Figures", was not made into a Lego, as Gizmodo reported.

Some of NASA's most influential women have finally been immortalized in an iconic toy set. Fan designer Maia Weinstock will be at the LEGO Store on New York City on October 28 to sign copies of the set ahead of its wide release on November 1.
