  • Navy Admiral Grace Hopper, the quotable computer genius who led the way into the age of high technology 
  • Langston Hughes, whose belief in possibilities drove him to overcome racism and write immortal poetry 
  • Nellie Bly, the pioneering woman journalist whose breathtaking adventures literally took her around the world 
  • Charles Steinmetz, the scientific genius with a giant heart lodged in a body four feet tall
