NASA döper sitt huvudkontor I Washington till Mary W. Jackson NASA Headquarters för att hylla NASA:s första svarta kvinnliga ingenjör. NASA:s chef Jim Bridenstine kommenterar det nya namnet på huvudkontoret:

Mary W. Jackson was part of a group of very important women who helped NASA succeed in getting American astronauts into space. Mary never accepted the status quo, she helped break barriers and open opportunities for African Americans and women in the field of engineering and technology. Today, we proudly announce the Mary W. Jackson NASA Headquarters building. It appropriately sits on ‘Hidden Figures Way,’ a reminder that Mary is one of many incredible and talented professionals in NASA’s history who contributed to this agency’s success. Hidden no more, we will continue to recognize the contributions of women, African Americans, and people of all backgrounds who have made NASA’s successful history of exploration possible.

Mary W. Jackson inledde sin karriär inom det amerikanska rymdprogrammet National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics 1951, organisationen som 1958 blev NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). Hon arbetade för NASA i olika roller fram till sin pension 1985. Hon dog 83 år gammal 2005.
