Summary
Edwards and Harris discuss the critical contributions black women made to NASA in the 1950s. They performed by hand the calculations that made it possible for the nation's astronauts to fly into space and return safely to Earth. Their efforts made it possible for young black women of subsequent generations to become the mathematicians and astrophysicists of today.--
