Jocelyn Bell Burnell recounts her discovery of pulsars

The story of Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s early-career discovery of pulsars and the accolades that flowed to her male supervisor is often told as emblematic of astronomy’s ongoing struggles with gender discrimination.

Bell Burnell and a host of other female astronomy luminaries recall their struggle with gender discrimination in the male-dominated world of physics in a new book, “The Sky is for Everyone: Women Astronomers in Their Own Words (opens in new tab)” (Princeton University Press, 2022). The book includes essays from exoplanet scientist Sara Seager and astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan, among many others.
