A Most Remarkable Story!
April 27, 2018
"That's one small step for a man . . . . . one giant step for mankind." - Neil Armstrong
Some of the most famous words of the last century were spoken from the moon. But who knew how much work went into the meticulous mathematical calculations that placed our American astronauts onto the cover of modern history. Some of these hard working professionals were not only trend setters in their field, but they were also young African American women, who had determined their way into the National Aeronautics and Space Administration position by position, having to over-prove their brilliance every step of the way.
Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden should be unforgettable.
While quite interesting, this book did not seem written for "young readers", for the information is quite technical at times and more suited for a textbook than informal reading. However, it's a story that needed to be told and I applaud the author for telling it.
