Science writer Nathalia Holt gave an illustrated talk about women mathematicians and engineers known as “human computers” who were recruited in the 1940s and 1950s to work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The lab later became part of NASA, and many of the women did crucial work in the space program for decades. Nathalia Holt is the author of Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars. This talk was part of the William B. Crawley Great Lives Lecture Series hosted by the University of Mary Washington. close
