Just at the weekend, I was invited to the preview of Hidden Figures an incredibly funny and moving film based on the true story of three women who worked behind the scenes at the American Space Task Group at NASA. I highly recommend it! Here is more on Hidden Figures and what is happening in Space Travel today.

"The incredible untold story of Katherine G.

The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big."
