She helped us propel the dawn of the Space Age through her work as a ‘human computer’. Now, our headquarters building will be named in her honor. Get to know Mary W. Jackson, our first African American female engineer:
Mary W. Jackson, one of the ‘Hidden Figures,’ was critical to getting American astronauts into space. She broke barriers at home, persevered, and inspired the next generation of engineers, scientists, and explorers. I’m pleased to see @NASA’s DC headquarters named in her honor.
"She made a very special effort to meet these young aerospace engineers, to welcome them, to show them hospitality, and to give them advice." — Dr. Christine Darden, retired @NASA_Langley engineer, on Mary W. Jackson’s mentoring of new African American employees, & young people.
"She enabled the hiring and promotion of a new generation of female mathematicians, engineers, and scientists. Mary W. Jackson was a pioneer in diversity and inclusion in policy, yes, but even more importantly, in action." — @NASA_Langley center director Clayton Turner
TODAY @NASA's Headquarters in Washington, D.C. is officially getting a name! The building will be named after Mary W. Jackson, the first African American female engineer at NASA. Tune in to NASA TV to watch the ceremony at 1 p.m. EST:
