Hidden Figures. Good show, but it could easily have been a three part if they would have followed up on the accomplishments these women did. When one reads the (can't think of the word for the paragraphs of follow up info following the end) "credits" of the women, it is then you finally understand what they went on to accomplish. Good story.
Good counterpart to the oldie-but-goodie ... The Right Stuff.
I have touched an Atlas missile, and met a couple of astronauts. But the cosmonauts were first. This used to be a great but flawed country. We need to realize we still are.
The engineers wanted the test pilots to approach but not cross the sound barrier. This was a bad aerodynamic idea ... being at, but not across the sound barrier, causes massive airframe vibration. The test pilots died. It took Chuck Yeager to say ... "F the engineers" and just go ahead and cross it. A matter of trusting one's ability to pilot, and abundant courage (not lack of fear). And when he did it, he had broken his ribs the day before, in horse riding accident ... but climbed in the X1 and rode it anyway. If the flight surgeon had known, he wouldn't have let him fly that day. He had to use a sawed off broom handle, to close the hatch, before he dropped from the carry plane, because he hurt to much otherwise. When people heard a sonic boom for the first time, they assumed he had died. The X1 developed into the X15, which went to the edge of space and one of the last people to fly one, was Neil Armstrong. We lost some X15 pilots too ... the thing had 1 million pounds of rocket thrust. The sound barrier is Mach 1. To achieve orbit, you have to go at least Mach 10.
