And fifty years later, Katherine Johnson a black woman working at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Virginia when the state was still deeply segregated would map John Glenn’s space flight, and America’s trip to the moon. Women are indelible contributors to the field, and two of this year’s best histories Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures, and Dava Sobel’s The Glass Universe are out to prove it..
