On Aug. 26, as part of NASA’s celebration of Katherine Johnson’s 100th birthday, agency employees received a special message from administrator Jim Bridenstine to mark the occasion. With slide rules and pencils, Katherine, a legendary NASA mathematician – and the other human computers who worked at the agency – helped our nation’s space program get off the ground, but it was their confidence, bravery and commitment to excellence that broke down racial and social barriers that continue to inspire to this day.
