Behind the public face of NASA’s triumphant Space Race victory, a small army of human ‘computers’ performed the calculations vital to get astronauts such as John Glenn safely into space and back.
One of the most important was Katherine Johnson (Henson), an African-American woman.
Following Johnson and her colleagues as they strive to overcome the limitations of segregation and the doubts of many white colleagues, this Best Picture nominee is a hugely enjoyable and inspirational tribute to these pioneering talents.
With two showings at 11am and 7.30pm.
