#OTD in 1967, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, then a graduate student, discovered pulsars. The discovery garnered a Nobel Prize just six years after it was announced in 1968 — but Burnell’s supervisor got the prize instead of her. #PulsarWeek
Another stolen prize. The supervisor needs at the very least a right solid bitchslap that would knock some common decency into the feeble excuse for a brainpan.
This genius girl did the work. She obviously has thirty or forty times the twerps brain power. And I would have loved to have known her back then. Ahem. Yes, well. But damn it I hate when there is this sort of injustice and it is rife.
But the truth is known, Ms Burnell! We know that YOU did it… not that mook.
Carry on, eh.
