Jane Green: Astronomy

Thu 22 Nov / Quarterhouse

In this talk, Jane Green, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, presenter, author and broadcaster, challenges our perceptions of other 'stars' behind some of astronomy's most revolutionary discoveries. It is a powerful, revelatory tale of 'secret' pioneering women, starting with Wiltshire-based Caroline Herschel, and casts light not only on other female 'computers' and scientists but also on their wondrous celestial milestones. It is a story where strength has no gender, imagination no race and courage is without limit.
