An incredible and inspiring untold true story about three women at NASA who were instrumental in one of history’s greatest operations — the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit

Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) — brilliant African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the space race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial lines and inspired generations.
