Product description

The true story of the NASA heroine who used maths to touch the moon. Maths matters. Just ask Katherine Johnson. As a kid, she counted the steps on the road and the dishes in the sink. As a grown woman, she did the sums that got the historic Apollo 11 mission to the moon – and back again. Now this beautiful full-colour book tells you the life story of a brilliant maths genius who also fought for equal rights. Find out how, when the first moon mission was in big trouble, all the astronauts ended up counting on Katherine!

  • A hugely inspiring biography illustrated in full colour
  • The story of a trailblazing African-American woman
  • Shows how Katherine made the moon landings possible
  • Explains how she saved Apollo 11 from terrible danger
  • A vivid tale of using maths to save lives/change history
