The film, based off the book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly, starred Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae and was nominated for countless awards including three Oscars. It told the true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA who were instrumental to the country's scientific progress during the space program's early days.

The real life Katherine Johnson, whom Henson portrays in the film, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2017, and had the Katherine G. Johnson Computational Research Facility named after her at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia in 2016.
