George Morgan talked about his book, Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist, in which he tells the story of his mother, Mary Sherman Morgan, the first female rocket scientist in the U.S. and inventor of hydyne, the propellant that boosted America’s first satellite into orbit. The program Mary Morgan worked on was highly secret, so her family had very little idea of her accomplishments until after her death. He spoke with Ashley Stroupe of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. close
