Default Icon of Science death - Katherine Johnson

https://twitter.com/user/status/1231954422785363968


For anyone that follows the history of the Space Program and watched the movie Hidden Figures, Katherine Johnson was a giant in terms of the program and the civil rights fight.



She was one of the original Computer's that wore skirts as NASA at the time called the pool of woman who's sole job was to do calculations for space launches and orbits and re-entries.

I thought this was a death metal thread at first glance at the title.

Glad I clicked anyway. Interesting character and story.
