Based on the untold true story
Meet the women you don't know, behind the mission you do.
They wanted a chance to change their lives, but they got a chance to change history.
Genius has no race. Strength has no gender. Courage has no limit.
Revealing Mistakes
In Virginia, cars have had both front and rear license plates but in the movie, the ladies' car had only a rear Virginia plate and in the 50s and 60s, the license plates had no more than six digits.

Factual Mistake
John Glenn's Friendship 7 is shown orbiting nose first, when in actuality the orientation was heat-shield first.

Kevin Costner's "Al Harrison" wears spectacles with a non-glare coating made available only in the last decade or so.

Factual Mistake
When a state trooper arrives to escort the ladies to town, in a 1964 Ford Galaxie police car, a character remarks that is 1961.

Factual Mistake
Until the 1970s engineers had used slide rules for quick computations, but none are shown on their desks

Factual Mistake
The cast members are using an IBM Selectric typewriter which wasn't introduced until July of 1961.
The film brings together Octavia Spencer and Kevin Costner, who had previously worked together in the movie Black or White

The actual working relationship between the engineers and women was not as hostile as it appears in the film.

When Taraji P Henson was signed on for the lead role, she had met with the real-life Katherine Johnson, who was 98 years old, to discuss the character she was about to portray
