Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of the 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.
Theirs was a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanised the world and yet their role was unknown to the global audiences tuning in to watch history be made.
