When satellites are launched into orbit, it's necessary to keep track of the gravitational pull of other bodies. Even with a modern computer, these calculations are extremely difficult. Roy and her comrades made these calculations - which require a high degree of accuracy - with limited machines. Photo…
Read Sen. Bernie Sanders report that tells the tale of the greedy and corrupt 1% and see for yourself. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MUCH GOOD COULD HAVE COME TO OUR COUNTRY IF THOSE TAXES WERE COLLECTED instead of wasted on their bonuses, lobbying, political contributions, environmental destruction, military contracts and protecting their piles of cash. The only people that suffer for it is the 99%!
