Lady Computers

Reaching for the Stars: Women in Astronomy

Friday 19th February 2021
17:30-18:30 GMT

A special one off event as part of the Audacious Women Festival 2021

Hear stories of intelligent, ingenious and often audacious women who have lived and worked at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh over the years. As “Lady Computers”, astronomers, engineers and professional staff these women have often done things first and best, reaching for the stars but not always given the chance to shine the brightest.
