Opinion

From Library Staff

An illustrated portrait of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt traces the years she spent measuring stars from her position at the Harvard College Observatory and her important discoveries that enabled the scientific community to gain a fuller understanding of the universe's vast size.

Women in science were supposed to record observations, not think about them. When Henrietta started thinking about what she saw, the universe became a much larger place.
