Scientist Rosalind Franklin made the first clear X-ray images of #DNA’s structure. Her work was described as the most beautiful X-ray photographs ever taken. Franklin’s ‘Photo 51’ informed Crick and Watson of DNA’s double helix structure for which they were awarded a Nobel Prize. Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, aged 37, her contribution to DNA’s discovery story unacknowledged. #nobelprizewinner #gogirl #science #rosalindfranklin
An article featuring a few prominent women scientists: Rosalind Franklin (genetics), Jocelyn Bell Burnell (astronomy), Esther Lederberg (genetics), Chien-Shiung Wu (experimental nuclear physics), Lise Meitner (nuclear physics), Nettie Stevens (genetics) "Several people posted comments about [The National Geographic magazine] story that noted one name was missing from the Nobel roster"

Ill Seen, Ill Said: Inspiring Women
Marie Tharp, a pathbreaking oceanographic cartographer at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, co-creator of the first global map of the ocean floor and co-discoverer of the central rift valley that runs through the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A pioneer of modern oceanography, Tharp was the first to map the unseen topography of the ocean floor on a global scale. Her observations became crucial to the eventual acceptance of the theories of plate tectonics and continental drift in the earth sciences.
