It is through the ability to carry out complex computations that Katherine Jackson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Vaughan were able to help John Glenn navigate through space. The three ladies managed to overcome the obstacle of racism and wrote one of the most significant pages available in the books of history. For instance, in the movie, Katherine Jackson faces a lot of racial prejudice from her boss, but this does not deter her from being one of the best Mathematicians and using her knowledge in the mathematics to help in the space landing.
