Leaving Orbit and Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures and Leaving Orbit are two new releases that will take you from the beginnings of the space race to the modern state of NASA and space flight. Hidden Figures follows the lives of four African American mathematicians who participated in many of NASA’s greatest successes from WWII to the Cold War. Leaving Orbit centers around the shuttle launches in 2011 that marked the end of the shuttle program; through those launches we get the story of space flight’s past and what can be expected of its future.
