Event description

Description

In 2019 we saw the first ever image of a black hole. Did you know that one of the key people behind the creation of this image was a woman? There are many firsts still out there for women in science and engineering, as we continue to push the boundaries of exploration and discovery.

Tour the beautiful Victorian buildings of the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, whilst hearing stories of intelligent, ingenious and often audacious women who have lived and worked there 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.
