For me, curiosity-driven science is a very interesting researching field, especially in the connection with nature. How fascinating is the fact that the trees have memory, that they can decide things⁉️ This heartwarming story is presentation of a complicated life of a scientist, from personal to professional struggles/sacrifices, and this story is also beautiful, simple ode to the nature, friendship and patience.

I found this book interesting, even through the more scientific parts. But it really followed the careers of all the great minds at JPL, men and women. The author put added emphasis on the lives of the women, Barbara and Helen especially, but I think it missed the mark of its subtitle, "The WOMEN who propelled us..." I admire Caltech and JPL for hiring more women, especially Jinez, one of the first black women to be hired in aeronautical science.
