商品详情

Katherine Johnson 传记,NASA的元老级数学家,冲破种族主义桎梏和性别歧视的传奇黑人女科学家,阿波罗登月计划幕后功臣。她依靠着最原始的工具:铅笔、计算尺和纸,推算出阿波罗着陆的精确轨迹,成就了Neil Armstrong“个人一小步,人类一大步”。Katherine Johnson的事迹,是在她帮助NASA缔造了一系列传奇几十年以后才为人所知。


As a young girl, Katherine showed an exceptional aptitude for math. In school she quickly skipped ahead several grades and was soon studying complex equations with the support of a professor who saw great promise in her.

But ability and opportunity did not always go hand in hand. As an African American and a girl growing up in an era of brutal racism and sexism, Katherine faced daily challenges. Still, she persevered.

In the early 1950s, Katherine was thrilled to join the organization that would become NASA, which had just begun to hire Black mathematicians. She computed the trajectory for Alan Shepard's first space flight - and then she worked on the Apollo 11 mission that landed the first men on the moon.

Throughout her extraordinary career, Katherine has broken boundaries and paved the way for women in science. This is her own story, a lively autobiography that will inspire young readers everywhere.
