In 2016, the book and movie "Hidden Figures" highlighted Johnson's story and those of her colleagues in the West Computing section of NACA. Johnson appeared at the 2017 Oscars ceremony and received a standing ovation, although the film did not win the best picture award for which it was nominated.

Clarke spent World War II as an officer in the Royal Air Force. Mr. Clarke’s reputation as a prophet of the space age rests on more than a few accurate predictions. In 1943 he was assigned to work with a team of American scientist-engineers who had developed the first radar-controlled system for landing airplanes in bad weather. In the book he demonstrates his new-found powers by detonating from space the entire arsenal of Soviet and United States nuclear weapons. Like much of the plot, this denouement is not clear in the film, from which Mr. Kubrick cut most of the expository material.

He soon introduced real technical problems into his tales of interplanetary travel, such as rocket control in moving into and out of gravitational fields. Before he wrote his book, Tsiolkovsky had actually evolved from fiction writer to scientist and theoretician. In 1951 Arthur C. Clarke, himself, predicted that orbital refuelling is the key to interplanetary flight. The single-stage rocket which he anticipated might have needed this.
