The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars
Author: Nathalia Holt ISBN 978-0316338929
Rise of the Rocket Girls is a book outlining the history of the “human computers’ at the Jet Propulsion Lab from the 1940s to the 2000s. Even the first core group of students included a talented mathematician who happened to be a woman. From that point on, JPL “computers” were almost always women. The first supervisor, Macie Roberts, would only hire women because of her concern of any disruption caused by mixing a man into her department. Women were not allowed to be engineers at the time and these jobs were a God send to any young woman who had a sharp mind and an interest in the sciences.
