'Hidden Figures' movie

The film "Hidden Figures" was No. 1 all week at the box office. The film that stars Traji P. Henson, Jonelle Monae and Octavia Spencer is based on the true untold story about three African-American women who hand calculated mathematical data for NASA that helped launched some of NASA's first space missions.

Maj. Gen. Charles Bolden Jr., the retiring NASA administrator and the first African-American to head NASA, says it's one of the most inspirational films he's ever seen.
