Description

The AIAA Sydney Section is excited to announce our first activity of 2017 for our Sydney members, a showing of “Hidden Figures” at Hoyts Broadway followed by dinner and drinks at a (to be determined) local bar.

We are offering discounted $8 per person tickets for members, with the option for members to bring a guest at the same price. We require you to purchase the tickets online through this Eventbrite page by the 5th March, to allow for us to secure the tickets ahead of time.

If you need any convincing, we recommend you watch this Hidden Figures Official Trailer, or check out the plot summary below.


Plot Summary, credit: www.imdb.com

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
