This important movie is fascinating for so many reasons. I found it amazing they got an astronaut into space using the limited technology they had. I was appalled at how racial segregation was so pervasive. And it seems absurd that they made such a big deal about women being able to do intellectual work. Some people still try to uphold primitive views, some projects do blow up, and people still suffer discrimination based on race, gender and other distinctions. I go back and forth between being grateful that things have improved and disappointed that they are not better.
