Product description

The true story of a NASA heroine who used maths to touch the moon. Maths matters. Katherine Johnson proved it. As a kid, she counted the steps on the road and the dishes in the sink. And when she grew up, 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 mission to land on the moon was in big trouble, all the astronauts ended up counting on Katherine!

  • 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
  • Katherine Johnson died on 24 February 2020 aged 101
