The story of a team of African-American women mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the US space program.
The intellectuals, played a pivotal role in the launch of the now late astronaut John Glenn into orbit, as well as orchestrating his safe return.
This film is inspiring, uplifting and exciting!
The courage and determination shown by these women is something to be admired by all!
It showcases what can be done in the face of adversity, when sexism and racism tries to put you in ‘a box’, and what can happen when these walls are knocked down!
I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who is interested in Astrophysics, STEM, Spaceflight or the history of NASA!
A fantastic film based on an untold true story, it’s not to be missed!
