Women physicists and astronomers from around the world have transformed science and society, but the critical roles they played in their fields are not always well-sung. For instance, Henrietta Leavitt and Margaret Burbidge helped discover the Big Bang and the cosmic calendar; Anigaduwagi (Cherokee) aerospace scientist Mary Golda Ross helped make the Moon landings possible; and Marietta Blau, Hertha Wambacher, and Bibha Chowdhuri, contributed to the discovery of the building blocks of the universe and, in doing so, played a crucial role in determining who gets to do physics today.

Author and quantum physicist Shohini Ghose discusses the remarkable stories of rule-breakers and trendsetters who illuminated our understanding of the universe and reshaped the rules of society.

Ghose’s book Her Space, Her Time: How Trailblazing Women Scientists Decoded the Hidden Universe (MIT Press) is available for purchase.
