About Olympia LePoint
Olympia LePoint’s Accomplishments
Hailed the “New Einstein” by her fans, and named the “Modern Day Hidden Figure” by People Magazine, Olympia LePoint is an award-winning rocket scientist, author and TED speaker of the talk “Reprogramming Your Brain to Overcome Fear.” LePoint helped launch 28 NASA Space Shuttle missions into space. Today, LePoint’s Mission Control Room desk is a science exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. In her youth, Olympia LePoint overcame severe poverty, traumatic experiences, plus failing math scores by reprogramming her mind, which led her to graduate Top 5 from a 6,500 graduating class with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mathematics.
As an internationally recognized scientist, LePoint helped launch NASA’s Endeavour, Discovery, Columbia, and Atlantis Space Shuttles, part of a career total of 28 Space Shuttle Launches. She won The 2004 Boeing Company Professional Excellence Award, and The 2003 National Engineer of the Year “Modern Day Technology Leader” Award. LePoint has gained numerous engineering awards.
With her new book and her award-winning Answers Unleashed® educational science book series, LePoint discusses how human decisions can alter the course of time and how science and technology will change the course of our future. She is an author and science journalist who is exposing how science can provide answers for the future through her News stories, her educational books and live + virtual lectures at universities and global technology forums.
LePoint’s Books and TED Talks
- In 2010, LePoint wrote the book Mathaphobia®: How You Can Overcome Your Math Fears and Become a Rocket Scientist. Mathaphobia is U.S. Trademarked. Mathaphobia is a severe fear of math, like a learning disability that is linked to the amygdala part of the brain. The book’s contents are a part of the famous TED talk “Reprogramming Your Brain to Overcome Fear.”
- In 2018, LePoint wrote the book Answers Unleashed®: The Science of Unleashing Your Brain’s Power. In the book, LePoint uses Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and defines the Triabrain and developed her Triabrain Theory of Relativity, to explain how intuition and faith is a an integral part of the human brain’s innovative thinking. The contents of this talk was included in the TED-like Talk “Your Brain MASTERCLASS – Unleash A Genius Mind” given to a live audience at California State University Northridge.
- In 2021, LePoint wrote her third book, Answers Unleashed II: The Science of Attracting What You Want, where LePoint defines a new decision-making science theory called ‘Quantum Deciding’. LePoint defines a defines the math that explains how a person can jump into the future that they want, then come back and make six decisions to get there. Incorporating Albert Einstein’s Quantum Entanglement Theory and NASA’s long-distance teleportation discovery, LePoint’s ‘Quantum Deciding®’ is a method for people to make effective decisions for the future that they want. The contents of the book was given in the virtual TED-like Talk “Quantum Deciding” given to a live virtual audience at California State University Northridge Alumni.
