杰米森是一名宇航员,莱德也是。科学家罗曼和汉密尔顿与美国宇航局(NASA)有过合作。
Each woman is receiving a very high honor.No, they are not being admitted into a space “Hall of Fame.”But this honor might be even better: they are becoming Lego action figures.
每位女性都得到了很高的荣誉。不,他们没能进入太空“名人堂”,但这项荣誉可能更好:他们将成为乐高的玩具人偶。
Thanks to the work of a Lego fan and editor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,the four women will be represented in miniature toy form starting on November 1.
得益于一位乐高粉丝和麻省理工学院编辑的努力,这四位女性将在11月1日开始以微型玩具形式出现。
That is when people will be able to purchase the first-ever “Women of NASA” Lego set.
届时人们将能够购买第一批“美国宇航局女性”乐高系列产品。
The path to Lego fame began in the summer of 2016.Maia Weinstock is the deputy editor of MIT News, a publication of the famous university.She is also a Lego fan.
乐高的成名之路始于2016夏天。玛亚·温斯托克是麻省理工学院这所著名大学名为《麻省理工新闻》的刊物的副主编。她也是一个乐高迷。
According to a story in the publication, Weinstock has an interesting hobby.She makes Lego figures representing important people in the history of MIT.
根据该刊物上发表的一则故事,温斯托克有一个有趣的爱好。她制作了代表麻省理工学院历史上重要人物的乐高人偶。
But, most recently, she decided not to limit herself to MIT.Weinstock thought bigger and submitted the names of five women to Lego’s “Ideas” website.
但是就在最近,她决定不将自己限制在麻省理工学院。温斯托克想得更远,她向乐高的“创意”网站提交了五位女性的名字。
She called her submission “Ladies rock outer space!” and described how important those women were to U.S. space exploration.
她称这次提交为“女士震动外太空”。并描述了这些女性对美国太空探索的重要性。
As soon as 10,000 people expressed their support for the set, Lego announced it would produce it.
一旦10000人表示支持这个系列,乐高就宣布生产它。
In February, Lego said Weinstock’s set would be the next Ideas set.And on Wednesday, the toy-maker announced the set would be available in November.
在二月,乐高表示,温斯托克提出的这一系列将成为下一个创意套装。周三,玩具制造商宣布该套产品将于今年十一月上市。
The fifth woman in Weinstock’s proposal was Katherine Johnson,an African-American mathematician made famous by the recent film “Hidden Figures.”However, Lego could not agree with Johnson and her family about the look of the figure.So, it was not produced.
温斯托克提案里的第五位女性是非裔美国数学家凯瑟琳·约翰逊,她因为最近的电影《隐藏人物》而出名。然而,乐高无法与约翰逊及其家人在人偶外观上达成一致,所以未能生产。
The set also includes representations of the Hubble space telescope and the Challenger space shuttle.
该套装还包括哈勃太空望远镜和挑战者号航天飞机的呈现。
Many Lego fans are excited by the news.One Twitter user named Beth had a one-word reaction: “Woohooooooooo!!”
许多乐高迷都对这个消息感到兴奋。一位名为贝斯的推特用户用一个字回应:“哇!!”
