As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Shots of Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center show the crawler tracks to Launch Complex 39. LC 39 was constructed for launch of the Saturn V rocket that sent the Apollo spacecraft to the moon. Construction on LC 39 didn't begin until 1962 whereas the Shepard, Grissom, and Glenn launches were in 1961 and early 1962. The crawler path would not have been created yet. Furthermore, the Vehicle Assembly Building would not have existed yet, either. See more »
All this movie does is say that the empowerment of women means more than the truth.
Thank god for facts.
Based on events means, 3 women worked for NASA, they were black, could add,and had some interaction with scientists and helped put a man into space.
Western women will hail this as Gospel, Thank god for Trump who while a arrogant male believes in the merit of people and not in the feminist lie and political correctness of a vagina.
NASA has a ton of great minds working for them,add in 3 black women so what big deal, are you saying its a miracle black women can do math? So no Asian or any other minority, or minority males helped? Black women comprised only 6.6 percent of people working in science and engineering in the United States in 2013, according to a report released in 2016 by the National Science Board. While the overall number of women working in science and engineering has doubled in the past 20 years, the number of men in those fields still far outweighs the number of women, the report states.
The fact that there are not as many women as men means they get to pick their own life path, and people get picked on the merit of their skills and not sex or race.
These 3 black women saved NASA, not the male scientists who worked on rocketry through ww2....They had women working on the space program, they did their job in the face of bigotry, well done, but not a miracle.
