My most respected Instagram account is not about the street style icon Gilda Ambrosio, but nasa. Saga are among my favorite movies the old and also the newer Star Wars, radio lumbar stars make me happier than French of fries and into the desert, I want above all to look at the sky at night. Perhaps the kosmonautische influence of my father is fault. And so it was that I spent many hours ago YouTube last year.
About to see me, like astronaut Sunita Williams of the world is a 25-minute tour through the “orbital laboratory” and at the same time gives an insight into everyday life in zero gravity. But also the documentary “women in space” has me in mind. Because it shows that women in fact always been a powerful large proportion have contributed to any aerospace achievement – quite contrary to public perception, were hailed in the felt always male employees of NASA. There were “rocket girls” then calculated the way in space the astronauts, one thing above all: math genius. Only use of pencil, paper, and simple calculators they were alone able to solve complex equations. Without Margarete Hamilton originates from which spring the on board flight software for the Project Apollo, no astronaut would be landed depending on the Moon, let alone come back. And also the now 98-Jährige and gifted Katherine Johnson was one of those women that made possible the exploration of the universe. She also, however, struggled to enjoy not the same rights as male team members and about insisted to participate in all meetings of the engineer. With success. What first but nothing changed, that she had to sit as black in a separate Office and as their white colleagues and colleagues use even an other toilet.
Since Thursday, now also the movie tells “hidden figures” of their fight against prejudice and the recognition of their professional qualities.
Women in space:
The movie “hidden figures” based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s book and shows the development of three African-American mathematicians Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson, which were relevant to the mercury and involved in NASA’s Apollo program. It all starts in the America of the late 50s, where racial segregation was still making prevails, but also war. The Russians did it also already in space, why little else remains in the still young NASA as to rethink. The struggle for equality is still a rocky. Because sexism and racism is part of everyday business:
Johanna writes on amazed: “way, as the three women are treated, makes one cringe. When Katherine’s superior – the only character in the film, that is clearly for you – shattered the shield of the toilet for “colored women” and announced that NASA now “all the same color pee”, wants to best jump and start cheering.”
Nevertheless, a Hollywood film remains a Hollywood film. Platitudes is therefore at least as much as with big emotions. You should see “hidden figures” but anyway. It is solely because of the reverberation to motivation to stand up for dreams. And for a society of equal opportunities, there is – away from sex, skin color, sexual orientation or religion.
