Women in Astronomy

July 12 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

The early works of Aristotle, Galileo, and Newton gave us great insights into the workings of astronomical events.  The 19th and 20th centuries saw revelations in atomic and nuclear physics, paving the way for the study of high energy astrophysics events, such as supernovae and gamma-ray bursts.  Throughout history great leaps in our scientific understanding have often come from the contributions of women, pre-dating Aristotle by thousands of years to the nuclear era with Lise Meitner and Marie Curie and continuing today.
