The uplifting, amazing true story??a New York Times bestseller!

This edition of Margot Lee Shetterly's acclaimed book is perfect for young readers. It's the powerful story of four African-American female mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of the greatest moments in our space program.

Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as "human computers" used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, who lived through the Civil Rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country.

Don't be me and think that the "young adult edition" is the same book, just reformatted -- the "young adult edition" is an extremely dry book with full chapters about extraneous topics such as the history of the Great Depression. It reads like a history textbook. I'm going to try again with the real thing. ( )

I wanted to like this, and I really hoped that it would be something I could enthusiastically recommend to my students. Unfortuantley, reading this was a bit of a slog. This book was more data dump, less story.

Lives of the women as a lens for society at that time. ( )
  cathy.lemann | Mar 21, 2023 |
This is both a realistic and an optimistic presentation of the difficulties Black women encountered throughout their lives. The main focus is on women who worked in both the aircraft and the space industries. For most of their careers, these women worked harder and were paid less than their white counterparts. So many presented were polite to their abusers, a necessary, but painful response. This book begins almost a hundred years ago, and some progress has been made in the United States, but equality is far from achieved. ( )
