During the Cold War, the US was racing against the mighty Soviet Union to be the first nation to send a human being into open space. NASA was falling behind the schedule, but a group of genius black women took the hardest task and performed exceptionally. They were the brains behind this project and calculated the launch. This isn't a work of fiction, but the true story of three incredibly talented African-American ladies who, despite all odds, put Glenn in space and brought him back home safe and sound. Unfortunately, until recently, their story was never a subject of public knowledge. Thankfully, the movie and the bestselling novel are here to fix that.
