Event Description

During the last century four women astronomers stood out for their fundamental contributions to astronomy.

They discovered the distances to stars, the chemical makeup of the universe, revealed the significance of dark matter and made a compelling case for an ever-expanding universe.

Los Alamos scientist Bette Korber will highlight the challenges and triumphs of these scientists who helped blaze trails through the Milky Way and beyond.

Join Korber, and Santa Fe’s Karina Wilson on violin, for some science, music and history on International Women and Girls in Science Day.

Due to limited seating attendees are encouraged to register online for one of the two talks at https://frontiers-in-science.eventbrite.com
