'Women In Science' 

Chronological mosaic featuring nine awesome female Rock Star Scientists.

• Ada Lovelace - considered the world’s first computer programmer for her work on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine.

• Marie Curie - a pioneer in the field of radioactivity, as well as the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes in both physics and chemistry.

• Lise Meitner - Nuclear physicist who was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission (when one atom splits into two and releases energy).

• Barbara McClintock - ground breaking research in cytogenetics and developed the technique for visualizing maize chromosomes. Best known for her discovery of transposition and used it to demonstrate that genes are responsible for turning physical characteristics on and off. 

• Grace Hopper - computer scientist whose work led to one of the first modern programming languages. She also popularized the term “debugging” for fixing computer glitches after being motivated by an actual moth removed from the computer.

• Rachel Carson - marine biologist, conservationist, and author who reported the dangers of the synthetic pesticide DDT and it’s effect on wildlife. 

• Rosalind Franklin - contributor to discovering the fine molecular structures of DNA, RNA, viruses, coal and graphite.

• Esther Lederberg - microbiologist who devised the first successful implementation of replica plating and helped discover and understand the genetic mechanisms of specialized transduction. 

• Jocelyn Bell Burnell - astrophysicist who discovered the first radio pulsars (signals coming from rapidly rotating neutron stars). Some have called this the “greatest astronomical discovery of the twentieth century.”

Joyce Bell Burnell, discoverer of pulsars, is joining the ranks of my Cosmic Pioneers series this evening.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell, born 1943, is a Northern Irish astrophysicist who discovered the first radio pulsars (signals coming from rapidly rotating neutron stars). Some have called this the “greatest astronomical discovery of the twentieth century.”


She made the discovery while under her thesis supervisor Antony Hewish, for which Hewish shared the 1974 Nobel Prize in Physics with Martin Ryle, while Bell Burnell was left out despite having observed the pulsars.
