A Sign of Progress: Honoring NASAs Hidden Figures

Thanks to new signage, visitors to NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. will be reminded of the contributions of the "hidden figures" essential to the success of early spaceflight. The renaming honors Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, who were featured in Margot Lee Shetterlys book and the movie Hidden Figures, as well as all women who honorably serve their country, advancing equality, and contributing to the United States space program.

On June 12, Administrator Jim Bridenstine joined U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson and author Margot Lee Shetterly for the renaming of the street in front of NASA Headquarters in Washington E Street SW to Hidden Figures Way.
