After Yuri Gagarin’s flight into space, the US activates all possible resources so as not to lose the Space Race to the Soviet Union. Only a month later, Alan Shepard’s first flight takes place, and in that same year, John Glenn makes his first orbital flight. A meaningful role in this success was played by African-American women Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson – three mathematicians who mapped out the spaceship’s path for NASA.

Theodore Melfi’s film is based on the surprising story of three outstanding NASA employees, who were behind one of the greatest projects in American history, and nevertheless were forced to overcome prejudice, mistrust, and discrimination from society and their own colleagues. The film recevied three Oscar nominations, including one for Best Film.On Sat, Mar 11, 2017 at 2:05 PM, Andrew Freeburg wrote:
