What does this have to do with inventing? I'll get to that in a minute...
This is a really well-done film... at least all Americans should see it, although it will have global appeal. I'm not going to review it here either.
I saw "Hidden Figures" this evening... a fascinating bit of history that most people had no idea about. I didn't until the trailers came out, and relatively recently. I had two big questions after seeing it:
So, a Call to Action to all inventors is to work on something like renewable energy, a combination of high-efficiency solar, wind power, safe/sane nuclear power, wave/current power and other energy generation — everyone wins! Jobs are created, less pollution, etc. And regardless of global warming, this would be a boon to all. Instead of a "Space Race," how about an "Energy Race"?
What other Big Ideas could inventors work on collaboratively to make a difference to all humanity?
Go see Hidden Figures... get inspired to do big things!
