caffienekitty: (facepalm)
So, some dork pulled the fire alarm in the apartment I live in, and not seeing or smelling any overt signs of fire, this is what I grabbed. )
caffienekitty: Dean sitting slumped in a chair. "Will kill for coffee" (DW - science awesome)


This is a movie based on the lives of real women in the NASA space program in 1961. And if there was any fairness, the Johnson Space Center would be named after one of them instead of a President.

The only reason I've heard about this movie is because I'm on the NASA press release email list, and the only reason I know it's coming out so soon is because I follow Chris Hadfield on Twitter. I am stunned that I have not heard or seen anything else anywhere about this movie (although I don't get to theatres very often and don't watch enough broadcast TV to see many commercials, so maybe it is being promoted well and I just live under a rock.)

If you are interested in women in STEM, equal rights for women and for people of color, NASA history, spaceflight, math, or learning about people history should have celebrated a lot sooner and a lot louder, this is a movie you will want to see.


(Note: I will also be posting this on my Tumblr page, so those of you following me in both places will see it twice)
