Katherine Johnson (Mathematician and Scientist)
Katherine Johnson was an American mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. crewed spaceflights. During her 35-year career at NASA, she earned a reputation for mastering complex manual calculations and helped pioneer the use of computers to perform the tasks. The space agency noted her “historical role as one of the first African-American women to work as a NASA scientist.” In 2015, President Barak Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and in 2019 was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
