A team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program's first successful space missions.
This is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) -brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world.
Known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose through the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of the pioneering astronaut, and guaranteeing his safe return. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Also stars Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst.
