Hidden Figures

If women have been criminally overlooked in the history of scientific development, the work of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson in ensuring John Glenn became the first American astronaut to successfully orbit the Earth have barely received a mention.

They were three African-American mathematicians working in a segregated area of NASA and this is their story. It's an engaging, entertaining and remarkable tale.
