Book Review: Rise of the Rocket Girls

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.
