Rather than reinvent a wheel that has already been perfected, I’m not going to write a blog celebrating the amazing accomplishments of Katherine Johnson. Instead, I’ve got this lovely video of her talking about her work at NASA for the Makers blog. If you haven’t seen ‘Hidden Figures’ it would be a great way to celebrate her birthday!
