Dear Women@NASA Loyal Readers:
As I am sure you have noticed, it's been a while since we have written. Numerous excuses aside, I am eager to keep this blog going. So, I hope you check back as often as you have in the past! Today, I had a vision for this blog. I decided why must we only honor women in history during one month out of the year? Why not showcase their work and respect them year round? And that's exactly what I am going to do! I shall call it our "Women in History Shout Out" and post at least one every week. It's meant to be short and informative. A quote, a one to two liner about her, and a picture. Hope you enjoy!
"I have frequently been questioned, especially by women, of how I could reconcile family life with a scientific career. Well, it has not been easy."
Marie Curie (1867 – 1934) was a physicist and chemist who made major discoveries in the field of radioactivity. She was the first person to win two Nobel Prizes and the University of Paris’ first female professor.
