There was no choice but to be pioneers.

In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re honored to introduce you to Margaret Hamilton, the former head of MIT’s Software Engineering Department. Margaret developed the onboard flight software for NASA’s Apollo Program that led to the successful lunar landing in 1969.

It’s safe to say that without her guidance and brilliance, Neil Armstrong may never have spoke, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

On November 22, 2016, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work, and later she was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Margaret paved the way for women to enter and succeed in historically male-dominated STEM fields.

Today, we raise a glass to Margaret and her fellow groundbreaking sisters at NASA who have helped American girls shoot for the moon.
