A space supply ship carrying some four tons of cargo bound for the International Space Station launched from Virginia on Saturday [20 February]. The capsule is named for a Black mathematician whose contributions were featured in the Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures. Johnson, while working for NASA -- and its predecessor the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics -- contributed to work on the nascent space program. Her most remembered effort is the calculations that contributed to the February 20, 1962, mission that made John Glenn the first American to orbit the globe.
