When Computers Were Human

I finally got to see the excellent film "Hidden Figures" today. It tells the story of 3 genius women who broke barriers and crunched numbers for NASA. Human computers before the digital age and truly remarkable people. John Glenn reportedly wanted Katherine Johnson to confirm numbers before he launched.
 Katherine Johnson received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.
This film is definitely worth the price of admission.
