It’s Official! Amelia Earhart will fly on our next launch!

We’ve taken down the poll to see who the LEGO minifigure we will send up on the Loki Lego Launcher 3.0 will be. There were three choices: Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Amelia Earhart the first pilot to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, and Meridah from the Disney movie Brave.

The winner is … drumroll please … Amelia Earhart!

Amelia Earhart, who was a very brave pioneer in the aviation industry, is going to fly again, but this time, on the Loki Lego Launcher 3.0.

Amelia Earhart is no stranger to flying. She beat the Women’s Altitude record at 14,000 ft in 1922 which was extremely high at the time. Additionally, in 1930, she set the speed record of 181 miles per hour over 3 kilometers. She is most famous for being the first ever person to cross the Atlantic Ocean by plane.  “Please know I am quite aware of the hazards, I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things that men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others,” Amelia once said in a letter to her husband. Amelia tried to prove anyone can be anything, if that is what they want.

Thank you to everyone who voted in our online poll!  That was a lot of fun!  More updates about our next launch to come soon.
