It is understood that the team led by Hamilton developed airborne flight software for Apollo 11 and other manned Apollo missions. However, her influence has surpassed the scope of NASA, and she also believes that she was one of the first to create the term "software engineering."

In order to express respect for the pioneer figure, Google software engineers have rebuilt the Ivanpah solar power plant to collect moonlight through the use of 107,000 mirrors. They then removed the mirrors to reflect the light and formed a huge portrait of Hamilton. This image looks like it comes from an image that is still using the old CRT era.

Hamilton has fought for many fail-safe measures that have played a crucial role in the success of the Apollo 11 mission. In the age when software engineering was not in existence, her "if" thinking helped create a test-driven software development process.
