The Glass Universe (2016) Dava Sobel

Glass Universe (2016) Dava Sobel

Another great read from Dava Sobel. This one is about the fascinating group of women who worked in the Harvard Astronomy Lab during the period from before the turn of the century to the 1950’s. These women evaluated all of the glass slides created during the night by the telescopes that the lab operated in the US, Peru, and Africa. There were at the forefront of science but took a backseat to the men despite strong support from the director’s of the lab.

I highly recommend this book!!
