Prompt: The goal was to make a public sculpture and pick a place where this sculpture would sit.
I made a public sculpture inspired by the works and research conducted by Katherine Johnson, specifically her calculations for NASA. The piece shows details of her trajectory analysis for Alan Shepard’s May 1961 Freedom 7 mission. I also included the Apollo 11 Command Module since she was part of the team that calculated the path to get to and from the Moon.
