Dr. Bill Presents: Women of the Stars (Part One)

March 28, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Five thousand years ago, ancient priestesses studied the stars and planets as a way to forecast human and heavenly events, yet the names of most of these women have been lost. Join us for this exhilarating two-part series exploring the stories of the many women who have studied the night sky, from the ancient Babylonian astronomer-priestess Enheduanna and Hypatia, an early Roman philosopher, astronomer and mathematician, to Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, who earned Harvard Observatory’s first Ph.D. in astronomy.
