The Woman Who Saved the U.S. Space Race (And Other Unsung Scientists)

What do Mary Sherman Morgan, Alice Ball, and Rachel Lloyd all have in common? They were all chemists who made important contributions to chemistry but whose work is not widely known. One was a U.S. rocket scientist, while another discovered a better treatment for leprosy. The third studied sugar beets and helped establish them as a major agricultural crop in the U.S. This video from the American Chemical Society helps to shed light on the work of these scientists.
