My wife and I recently watched the movie, “Hidden Figures.” Aptly named, the film chronicles a team of African-American women mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the US space program. More specifically, it focuses on the lives of three of those mathematicians, Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson.

Prior to the release of the movie, an adaption from a book of the same name, I had not heard about these women, or their contribution to the space program.

These women, extraordinary
