NASA WOMEN WHO INSPIRED HIDDEN FIGURES TO RECEIVE CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDALS

Sabrina Barr

EXCERPT:

The women at Nasa who inspired the 2016 book Hidden Figures and subsequent biographical 1960s-set film of the same name are to be honoured with Congressional Gold Medals.

US President Donald Trump recently signed the “Hidden Figures Congressional Gold Medal Act” into law.

The act outlines that Congressional Gold Medals are to be awarded to mathematician Katherine Johnson and aeronautical engineer Dr Christine Darden and posthumously awarded to mathematician Dorothy Vaughan and aerospace engineer Mary Jackson in recognition of their work.

A fifth medal is also to be awarded in honour of “all of the women who contributed to the success of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration during the Space Race”.

The statement announcing the passing of the act states that “appropriate arrangements” are being made to present the five medals.

Brava! It's about time that these extraordinary women received the recognition that they so richly deserve.

I must admit that I loved the movie but I haven't yet read the book. My husband beat me to it and he highly recommends it.

I guess it just doesn't jibe with the narrative. Soon, they'll be forced to admit that Trump isn't an anti-Semite. :insanity:

My wife forced me to watch this movie (date night), and I was very surprised how much we enjoyed it. It was well done, and the story was one I had not heard about, and is told with more of a historical vibe that shows the inherent problems it wants to address and not crossover into a preachy 'woke' type message.

True greatness is best measured not just by what is achieved, but also by that which must be overcome.
Incredible ladies without whose contribution we would have never accomplished going to the Moon. Let their stories be the inspiration for many more.
