A group of women at NASA helped put a man on the moon. Their intellect was an essential part of America's ability to launch rockets into space. Jan Crawford shows us how they were relegated to a footnote in history ... until now.
As this year we can't visit London due to the covid-19, as we have done for the last 16 years, let me bring you some of my favourite places of this wonderful capital.
The smallest of London’s Royal Parks was created in 1660, when King Charles II made plans to walk from Hyde Park to St James’s Park without leaving royal soil. He acquired land between the two parks – thought to have been a burial ground for lepers in the Middle Ages – and called it Upper St James’s Park. In 1746 it was renamed Green Park, because it is the only Royal Park without any flowers.
As legend is known, King Charles’ wife discovered her husband had been picking flowers here for a mistress. Seeking revenge, the Queen ordered that every single flower in the park be pulled up and no more planted. There are still no formal flowerbeds in Green Park today.
