Breaks My Heart

I am glad she lived long enough to get the attention she rightfully deserved. This is the kind of history that needs to be inserted in all we are now taught about the Space Race. I had no idea who she was until Hidden Figures came out and that is a crime. If John Glenn would have died during his Friendship 7 flight the world may have turned out a lot different than it did but because of Johnson John Glen 'trusted the numbers' and was able to survive reentry.

God Speed Katherine Johnson.

Yes, at least she got the recognition and fame she deserved late in life, rather than never at all which is the unfortunate fate of so many.
