Vera Rubin was born in 1928 in Philadelphia. She earned her B.A. in 1948 at the women’s college Vassar, as the only student majoring in astronomy that year. Pursuing an academic career in science was not straightforward for women at the time. Princeton University didn’t accept female graduate students until 1975. Vera Rubin pursued her Master’s degree in physics at Cornell University and her PhD at Georgetown University, which she earned in 1954.

The Sky Above You is Not Dark.  It's all in your perspective ...which is determined by how you see the night lights.  ~John 12:36  "While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them."

Happy birthday to #astronomer Jocelyn Bell Burnell who discovered pulsars when just a grad student in 1967! I've shown her with her famous #radioastronomy dataset (a #datavisualization which has had a life of its own) showing the regular pulses they initially named LGM-1 for "little green men" as a joke. Her PhD supervisor Hewlish and theorist Ryle won the Nobel for this discovery. They neglected to include Jocelyn Bell (now Bell Burnell) for some reason. She's continued to have a very…

Ball State University is in Muncie, IN, and has strong programs in radio, tv, architecture, chiropractic, and others.  Very freshman friendly and engaging.  Very good food all over the campus.  Focus is on preparing for life, not just getting good grades in a classroom.  Worth a visit!

In astronomy women of color face the most discrimination Theres tons of evidence that women face a gender bias in the STEM fields. Last May one report found that Facebook rejects female-authored code more often than code written by men. A female engineer

An astronaut's spacesuit costs $35,000,000 each apx = uniquely tailored to one / rarely used again by any subsequent astronaut, as EXACT fit has to be perfect !! Earth rotates apx 20,000 miles an hour ,even a small particle of space debris rock can be catastrophic if strikes astronaut while they are doing a space 'walk'= bullet proof Kevlar materials with cutting edge personal survival systems don't come cheap !! ( Cost may be even higher now = info from TV fact programme QI ) by the way
