Margaret Hamilton and Grace Hopper Awarded The Presidential Medal of Freedom

Hey, everyone!

Yesterday our 44th President, Barack Obama, honored 21 recipients the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House in his last Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony.  Among them were computer scientists/programmers Margaret H. Hamilton (whom led a team to create the on-board flight software for NASA’s Apollo command modules and lunar modules), and Grace Hopper (known as “the first lady of software”) are among the the 21 recipients.

Congratulations to them and all of the recipients! Read about (all) the recipients, click here.
