NASA Invited the creative talent behind the 20th Century Fox film "Hidden Figures" to tour the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Included in the tour given by KSC Center Director Bob Cabana were Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Pharrell Williams and Ted Melfi.
The film is based on the book of the same title, by Margot Lee Shetterly, and chronicles the lives of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson -- African-American women working at NASA as “human computers,” who were critical to the success of John Glenn’s Friendship 7 mission in 1962.
