Katherine Johnson was born in White Sulphur Spring, West Virginia, in 1918. She was intellectually gifted, which put her several grades ahead in school.
In 1937, Katherine graduated from West Virginia State College with the highest honors, & began teaching at a Black public school in Virginia.
Katherine ended up leaving her teaching job after being admitted to West Virginia University. At this time, Black students were not allowed to attend the state’s flagship school. Katherine enrolled in the graduate math program but decided to begin a family & continue teaching shortly after.
In 1952, she was told about open positions at the all-Black section of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), later renamed NASA. She spent the next 4 years analyzing data from flight tests & worked on an investigation of a plane crash. Katherine analyzed the first human spaceflight & co-wrote a report on it, making her the first woman in the Flight Research Division to be given credit for a research report.
In 1962, NASA was preparing for the orbital mission of John Glenn. The astronauts were worried that the computer programs doing all the mathematical calculations for their mission might have errors, so Glenn asked for Katherine. She ran the same numbers & equations the computers were supposed to run by hand. The flight was a success & marked the turning point in the competition between the U.S. & the Soviet Union in space.
After this success, she went on to help on numerous projects & published many research papers until finally retiring in 1986. In 2015, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor. Katherine Johnson died in February of 2020 at 101 years old. Her work is still a vital piece of history for NASA & space aviation as a whole. Katherine Johnson pioneered the way not just for Black women but for all women to be a leading face of science & mathematics, proving a “woman’s place” is anywhere she wants it to be.

Bamboo from viscose is lightweight, breathable, and extra buttery soft for your baby's delicate skin. Its lush texture makes it a favorite amongst all ages. Its natural weave makes it stretchy enough for a nice snug fit, yet comfortable for all-day wear. The natural fibers make you feel like it's your second skin.
Did you know most children's wear is treated with flame retardants? You can rest easy knowing our bamboo is not treated with chlorine-containing bleaches, zinc, and sulfate. We comply with snug fitting standards to ensure we don't use any chemicals during our production process.
Benefits of Bamboo From Viscose
It is hypoallergenic, allowing moisture to evaporate and dry quickly. In addition to being naturally hypoallergenic and anti-fungal, it is also odor resistant and naturally regulates body heat. Micro-gaps aid in ventilation by trapping in cool air during hot seasons and traps warm air during cold seasons. This means you stay cooler during the summer and a few degrees warmer during the winter. This makes it great specifically for people with sensitive skin and/or allergies.
It has natural UV protection to protect your peanuts from sun rays in comfort.
NOT ALL BAMBOO IS CREATED EQUAL
There are many ways to produce bamboo. Here at Posh Peanut, we are dedicated to giving back to our planet. Eco-friendly- bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on earth. It requires very little water and grows 3-4ft a day without any fertilizers. Since our bamboo is made without any harsh chemicals, we are proud to say our products are made ethically using the highest standards in textile.
