Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist is for sale now.

Mary Sherman Morgan, born in 1921, worked at Rocketdyne during the space age. she was the only women there, and one of the few without a college degree. She had dropped out of college to take up a job as a chemist, since she was short on money. She was most famous for the development of Hydene, the fuel that powered the Explorer 1, the first US satellite, into orbit.

Her son wrote a semi-biographical play about her life. This was such a success that he followed this up with a book, which can be found in your favorite bookstore today.
