Hidden Figures

The mum and I watched a movie tonight. A really, really good one about three extraordinary women who helped to significantly advance NASA in the space race to the moon. 


Katherine Johnson performed calculations that helped the Friendship 7's and John Glenn's orbit around Earth become a success.

Dorothy Vaughan helped get the IBM computer in working order and became the first black woman to be a supervisor in the West Campus at Langley.

Mary Jackson became NASA's first black female engineer.

Such brilliant women. I think I may have found three new people to look up to.
