Some of you may be interested in something my book club read titled “Hidden Figures” about the Black women mathematicians who were essential to the US space program. Actually they were the geniuses behind it even though white guys with crew cuts in NASA control rooms get all the glory. We all thought the book was dry reading & too much like a graduate school dissertation but the movie with the same title based on the book was a marvelous dramatization because it focused on three of the leading women who put those rockets in space. Personally I detest the militarization of space exploration but was fascinated by these women & the role they played despite the racism, sexism, & lack of recognition.
