New computing movie – Hidden Figures

My colleague, Bob Doran, has brought to my attention a new movie about computers called Hidden Figures. IMDB describes it as: “Based on a true story. A team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program’s first successful space missions.” It will be at a cinema near you soon.
