In 2016, Darden was included in the NY Times Best Seller, “Hidden Figures,” by Margot Lee Shetterly. Darden is recognized as an international expert in sonic boom prediction, sonic boom minimization, and supersonic wing design. One of Darden’s NASA medals was for her active involvement in working with and encouraging students to pursue careers in math and science.
