Margaret Hamilton was the lead software engineer on the team that developed the Apollo flight computer software, and is credited with coining the term "software engineering." As the Apollo 11 Lunar Module tried to land, an error in the flight manual led to an unnecessary radar being left on, overloading the computer. Her robust design allowed it to detect and report overload situations, and to skip lower-priority tasks. The system handled it appropriately and the landing was not aborted.

The pretty Judy Garland as Dorothy and Margaret Hamilton who played the horribly mean Miss Gulch together in The Wizard of Oz. The Merv Griffin Show in 1968 was a memorable renunion of the pair.
