She also has a funky purple hair streak sure to thrill kids everywhere who appreciate an authentic style. Families also can enter a "Mission to Mars Sweepstakes" to win a trip to Space Camp. Her name is Luciana Vega, and she's an aspiring astronaut who wants to go to Mars. She continued that she always wanted to encourage children to pursue their dreams, it doesn't matter how big they are, and she thinks that it will help to show that those dreams can turn into reality for any child.

American Girl worked with Dr. Megan McArthur Behnken, a NASA Astronaut; Dr. Ellen Stofan, former NASA chief scientist; Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center; and Maureen O'Brien, the manager of strategic alliances at NASA, in order to develop Luciana's background story and product line. "I've been in space and fixed the Hubble space telescope, so I have some perspective on how we use robotics, how we train for robotics". "It's all about building girls of strong character".

According to American Girl, Luciana is the first doll whose character truly embraces science, technology, engineering, and math, referred to as STEM for short.

The 18-inch doll's elaborate story, written by Erin Teagan, will be available in a Scholastic chapter-book series that focuses on her winning a scholarship to attend Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala. Her books can be purchased both in stores and online.
