The Women of the Moon

Format: Impact Book
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198844419
Publisher: OUP Oxford

Of the 1586 lunar craters that have been named to honour scientists and philosophers, only 28 honor a woman. Who were these women? What has happened to make women deserve such a singular lack of recognition? This book recounts their lives and achievements. In one way or another, these were remarkable women. Some were awarded a Nobel Prize, others were female astronauts, and others funded scientific projects. Most readers will only know a few of them if at all, but their exemplary lives are inspiring. Along the way, the book explains some of the science, and provides interesting facts about the Moon, enhancing appreciation and understanding of science through these individual stories.
