Real life 'Hidden Figures' Mathematician Katherine G. Johnson was honored by NASA in September. NASA’s 37,000-square-foot, 23 million-dollar, state-of-the-art research facility in Hampton, Virginia was officially named the Katherine G. Johnson Computational Research Facility. When asked for her reaction to having the building named after her, 99-year-old Johnson said, "You want my honest answer? ... I think they’re crazy.” Crazy or not, this is one well-deserved honor. See the ribbon cutting ceremony below.
