Nancy Grace Roman – Astronomer

Last but not least we have Nancy Grace Roman, the “Mother of Hubble” (in relation to the Hubble Space Telescope). She’s still around, and from her biography she’s a great example of perseverance in the face of adversity.

Though both Margaret Hamilton and Nancy Grace Roman are accompanied by black and white photos, only Nancy is depicted as the grandma of the group. Her necklace sports an array of metallic colours, which is a nice touch.

The Satellite

Nancy’s display unit is slightly different in that it has a connector sticking up from the base. The screen, appearing to be an abstract picture of an asteroid or something, is a printed 1x4x3 panel.

The connector is used to support this rather interesting satellite, constructed almost entirely out of Light Bluish/Medium Stone Grey parts. It’s not the most stable build, particularly when adding the solar panels, but it all comes together.

Nancy appears to be right at home, hosting a seminar on satellite imagery, once everything is put together. I was unsure of which way round the satellite was meant to be placed, until referring to the instructions. (I prefer the first one.)
