My vote: Katherine Johnson

I've been a space enthusiast since the Mercury program. Katherine Johnson has been a hero of NASA for a long time.

I remember you saying that you've been a space enthusiast when someone made a poll about the moon landing. Thanks for the vote.

All three. Why? Mary Jackson's genius was immediately recognized and valued by the scientists who were foreign born immigrants to this nation. The other two's geniuses were recognized but many tried to use racial and gender based racism to use these women and to suppress them and take credit for their work. While Katherine Johnson was by far the most glamorous (?) and vital to placing a man on the moon and getting him back alive, I think Mary Vaughn was equally important in the sense that she fought hard to save her job and the jobs of the people in her department ( or crew), and the white women too indirectly, when NASA tried to replace the human computers with the IBM computer. Think about it. Vaughan found away to teach her crew programming when that knowledge was being denied to them at even the local library.

Very good points! I would find it very difficult to vote for just one, which I guess in one reason I made the poll, lol. 'Three amazing and important women to whom I, especially as a woman, feel a great debt of gratitude.
