Katherine Johnson - Women of Science

Description

As a child, Katherine Johnson started breaking down barriers at a young age. She was so gifted at math, she started high school at age 10. Later, she was one of the first three Black students to integrate the graduate school of West Virginia University. As a Black female mathematician at NASA in the 1950s, Johnson worked as a human “computer” solving complex mathematical equations by hand. Her computational work was critical for some of the country’s most momentous space missions, including those that sent the first Americans into space, around the Earth, and onto the surface of the Moon. In 2016, when she was 98 years old, NASA named the newly-built Katherine G. Johnson Computational Research Facility” after her.
