    Default Katherine Johnson: The brilliant woman who got the US into space

    In deeply divided 1950s America, how did a black woman become the one person astronauts would trust to get them into orbit? Discover Katherine Johnson's amazing story

    Her story was told in the excellent film "Hidden Figures." Well worth watching.

    I think she made it to 100yo too, unless she fiddled the figures.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Good movie on the whole, but why must Hollywood change facts in their movies?
