Hello, I just thought since you posted that article about Satyendra Nath Bose and his contributions towards science that I thought I’d share something I learned in my astronomy class. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was awarded the Nobel prize in physics…

Chien-Shiung Wu, First Lady of Physics

Chien-Shiung Wu (simplified Chinese: 吴健雄; traditional Chinese: 吳健雄; pinyin: Wú Jiànxióng, May 31, 1912 – February 16, 1997) was a Chinese Americanexperimental physicist who made significant contributions in the research of radioactivity.

Wu worked on the Manhattan Project, where she helped develop the process for separating uranium metal into the U-235 and U-238 isotopes by gaseous diffusion. She is best known for conducting the Wu experiment, which contradicted the Law of Conservation of Parity. This discovery earned the 1957 Nobel Prize in physics for her colleagues Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen-Ning Yang, and also earned Wu the inaugural Wolf Prize in Physics in 1978.

Her expertise in experimental physics evoked comparisons to Marie Curie, and her many honorary nicknames include “the First Lady of Physics”, “the Chinese Madame Curie”, and the “Queen of Nuclear Research”.

Finding the tiny Higgs Boson took the biggest machine in the arsenal of physics — and help from one woman obsessed with the nature of reality. Read more here.

I really really happen to be curious on why there are less than 500 notes on this incredible woman

Your last word explains why

So help me, until I scrolled down I thought this was a picture of lettersfromtitan. (Which means you automatically get cast in the biopic that will never be made.)

So help me, I thought it was me for half a second.  Damn that’s weird.  (I blow at physics though.  Go go gadget doppleganger).

Two teams at CERN have found a new particle.  They think it might be a Higgs Boson particle, but they are being circumspect, unlike the press.
