Sunday, May 20, 4pm, Parlor

Late 1800s, Harvard College Observatory. “Computers” – women employed for half a man’s salary to analyze astronomic data — show us that the universe is larger than we ever dreamed. The thrilling story of five women who changed the way astronomers saw the universe – from scientist to scientist and generation to generation.

The Women Who Mapped the Stars, a world premiere by Joyce Van Dyke, is the untold story of brave women in science who paved the way for previously impossible advances in astronomy.
