HAMPTON, Va. — The U.S. Senate may award a Congressional Gold Medal to the women portrayed in the 2016 film “Hidden Figures.”
The Daily Press reported Wednesday that the award would go to Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, and posthumously to Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan.
The women crunched numbers at the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, during the early days of the U.S. space program.
