These women sent a generation of astronauts into space. Now Hollywood is telling their story

“Hidden Figures” tells the story of mathematician Katherine Johnson and the other black women from NASA’s early days.

Although mathematician Katherine Johnson was honored last year with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, few know just how integral she was to the U.S. space race.

Fortunately, many more soon will. Her story is being made into the movie "Hidden Figures," which tells the tale of how Johnson and several other black women played a pivotal role in helping the U.S. send men into space and bring them back safely.
