This is what I’m here for
Btw I just found out that Rosalind Franklin was Jewish. Go Jewish ladies.
❤ I don’t care how many years ago it was I am always hear for people calling out Watson and Crick as the frauds they were ❤
All of these women are Jewish. Let’s not erase that.
NO ONE GIVES A FUCK IF THEY’RE JEWISH OR HISPANIC OR WHITE OR BLACK OR ASIAN OR MUSLIM OR HINDU, WHY CAN’T WE JUST APPRECIATE THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS.
because representation is important, and not to mention that two of these women are actively practicing jews
mayim bialik is a modern orthodox jewish woman who would read the torah on set between filming scenes for The Big Bang Theory, and natalie portman grew up studying at jewish schools and speaks hebrew, and often speaks about how important judaism is to her in interviews
i’m a jewish girl and i “give a fuck” that these cool ladies are all jewish too
recognizing that facts takes nothing away from their achievements: if anything, it makes those achievements even grander when you consider they all belong to an extreme minority that has been shunned and faced hatred around the world
not to mention that Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-Jewish woman inventing this tech and starring in movies during the era of Nazi fucking Germany
so that’s why stating their ethnicity matters
Its pretty incredible how accurate the science of astrophysics has gotten. New Horizons actually arrived 72 seconds early after travelling for almost 10 years straight to its destination.
Hello! The person who calculated the arrival time of New Horizons was Yanping Guo, mission design leader and one of the women who made up 25% of the New Horizons team. She configured the entire mission trajectory, including Jupiter and Pluto flybys.
Women’s contribution to the sciences has a long history of being erased, so let’s not forget the women who made New Horizons possible!
