Annotation As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. We follow the unbelievably true life stories of three women, known as "human computers", as they quickly rose through the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Based on the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly. Menu navigation required.
