Meet the women you don’t know, behind the mission you do.
As the U.S. 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—played with humor and candor by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe—cheer on these remarkable Americans who enabled John Glen to be launched into space while you groove out to a soundtrack by Pharrell.
