Rocket Girl: Son Restores Mothers Lost Legacy As America’s First Female Rocket Scientist []

Since Mary Sherman Morgan’s passing in 2004, her son George Morgan has been working tirelessly to do something that was never done by those who should have… to write his mother and her extraordinary accomplishments into the historical record.

A true unsung heroine of the Space Age, Mary’s story is as jaw dropping as the way in which George only recently came to learn exactly what his mom, a brilliant, but modest woman, did to single-handedly save America’s space program almost 60 years ago.

In 1957, the race was on to see which world super power would be the first to place a satellite into orbit. As American rockets kept blowing up on the launch pad, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik. The U.S. Army’s Redstone rocket could reach orbit, but only if a more powerful fuel could be developed.
