The Human Computer — Katherine Johnson’s Story is a tribute book to Katherine Johnson, the great mathematician who helped NASA make the space program a wonderful success. This project presents a selection of the 26 scientific reports written by K. Johnson, retyped with new high quality figures.
The volume includes a new biography of the great scientist enriched by interviews with current and former members of NASA and ESA. In addition, a detailed commentary will be written by astrophysicists from several international institutions across the world in order to help the reader understand the meaning and significance of her calculations.
Thanks to 120 backers on Kickstarter, this project is now fully funded.
