WOMEN IN ASTRONOMY

Most of the main figures in the history of astronomy have been men. However some women have been able to buck the system and make critical contributions to our understanding of astronomy.

Which woman do you think made the greatest contribution to astronomy, and why?

To achieve a high grade, you will need to include significant biographical information on the astronomer you choose, as well as a description of their research achievements and the impact these results had (or even still have) on astronomy.

Beatrice Muriel Hill Tinsley (1941-1981)
