Rise of the rocket girls : the women who propelled us, from missiles to the moon to Mars by Nathalia Holt( Book )

27 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Czech and held by 2,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During World War II, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate jet velocities and plot missile trajectories, they recruited an elite group of young women -- known as human computers -- who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design and helped bring about America's first ballistic missiles. But they were never interested in developing weapons -- their hearts lay in the dream of space exploration. So when JPL became part of a new agency called NASA, the computers worked on the first probes to the moon, Venus, Mars, and beyond. Later, as digital computers largely replaced human ones, JPL was unique in training and retaining its brilliant pool of women. They became the first computer programmers and engineers, and through their efforts, we launched the ships that showed us the contours of our solar system. Rise of the Rocket Girls tells the stories of these women who charted a course not only for the future of space exploration but also for the prospects of female scientists" -- Library of Congress
Cured : how the Berlin patients defeated HIV and forever changed medical science by Nathalia Holt( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young molecular biologist at the forefront of HIV research, Nathalia Holt tells the historic, multilayered, and compassionate story of two patients--each known in medical literature as the Berlin Patient--and their young research-minded doctors. The backdrop is nothing less than a revolution in cultural attitudes and medical thinking. These two patients' disparate cures came twelve years apart: the first in 1996 from an experimental cancer drug, the other in 2008 from a bone marrow transplant of cells with a particular genetic mutation. Holt connects the molecular dots of these two cases for the first time, providing insight into one of the most important medical breakthroughs of our generation.--From publisher description
Rise of the rocket girls : the women who propelled us, from missiles to the Moon to Mars by Nathalia Holt( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The riveting true story of the women who launched America into space.In the 1940s and 50s, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they didn't turn to male graduates. Rather, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible.For the first time, Rise of the Rocket Girls tells the stories of these women—known as "human computers"—who broke the boundaries of both gender and science. Based on extensive research and interviews with all the living members of the team, Rise of the Rocket Girls offers a unique perspective on the role of women in science: both where we've been, and the far reaches of space to which we're heading
