NASA Momma – Cynthia Vernon shares a story

I wanted to post this on my blog, so that it could get a larger audience.

“George Carlin once said: “I like it when a flower, or a little tuft of grass grows through a crack in concrete. It’s so fuckin’ heroic!”

My mom Cynthia Vernon was always my hero. And then, I learned something about her I had never known. She was a Hidden Figure at NASA. [Link to movie – https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hidden_figures/]

This is her story (as published in Working Mother)” (Click on “as publ…” or see Link Below)


I took a screen shot of the Working Mother web page to give a face to the authors (daughter and mother).

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
