“Meet the women you don’t know, behind the mission you do.”See the untold story of three African-American women working at NASA’s Langley Research Center in 1961. These women become the brains behind one of the greatest human achievements of all time: launching John Glenn into orbit. This stunning success for America restored confidence in the nation and marked a turning point in the space race. It was Katherine Johnson, a mathematician working as a human computer, and her brave colleagues, aspiring engineer Mary Jackson, and their supervisor Dorothy Vaughan, who overcame immense gender and racial divides to prove that, “genius has no race, strength has no gender, and courage has no limit.”Join us at Space Center Houston Friday, March 22 for the next installment in our Space on Screen series, featuring the blockbuster, “Hidden Figures.”
