In an environment often hostile to women at the time, Mary Sherman Morgan's exceptional abilities as a theoretical performance analyst lead to the invention of hydyne, a rocket fuel cocktail, that enables the United States to remain competitive in the race for space. This story is lovingly reconstructed by her son through interviews with her colleagues and family. Creative licence is used in the dialogue as admitted by the author.
Mary Sherman Morgan's biography adds a fascinating new dimension to the history of the US space program, and to the history of women in science from the 1940s on. Told by her son (whose writing style may not be exactly to your taste), it is also a very personal story and so will appeal to those who enjoy a good memoir.
