Mars rover to be named after overlooked female DNA pioneer Rosalind Franklin

Europe’s first Mars Rover will be named after the British female scientist who helped discover DNA but was overshadowed by her male colleagues. Rosalind Franklin, whose groundbreaking “photo 51” enabled James Watson and Francis Crick to decipher the double helix, will give her name to the space robot that launches for the red planet next year. The UK-assembled craft will carry a two-metre drill to look for evidence of organisms below the Martian surface in a former ocean bed. Experts working on ...

New Mars rover named after DNA pioneer Rosalind Franklin

A British-made rover that will set off for Mars next year in search for signs of life was named Thursday after DNA pioneer Rosalind Franklin. UK astronaut Tim Peake revealed the name of the first European scavenger of the Red Planet at the Airbus factory just north of London where it was built. Cambridge-educated Franklin "helped us understand life on Earth and now her namesake will do the same on Mars," UK Science Minister Chris Skidmore said at the unveiling.

“The Matilda Effect”: How Pioneering Women Scientists Have Been Denied Recognition and Written Out of Science History

Photo via Wikimedia Commons The history of science, like most every history we learn, comes to us as a procession of great, almost exclusively white, men, unbroken but for the occasional token woman—well-deserving of her honors but seemingly anomalous nonetheless. “If you believe the history books,” notes the Timeline series The Matilda Effect, “science is a guy thing. Discoveries are made by men, which spur further innovation by men, followed by acclaim and prizes for men. But too often, there...

That’s what she said: celebrating women in history [slideshow]

Achievements, contributions, and developments made by women have often gone overlooked or unacknowledged throughout world history. In 1909, “National Women’s Day” was held on 28 February in New York, which was amended to “International Women’s Day” two years later. President Jimmy Carter issued a proclamation declaring the week of 8 March, 1980, as National Women’s History Week. Congress then designated the entire month of March as Women’s History Month in 1987, to raise awareness and empower wo...

‘Women scientists have built our world. It’s time to invest in them’ – The Cambridge women campaigning for gender equality in science

It’s unlikely, as she wrote these words, that Dr Marie Sklodowska-Curie ever imagined the ongoing pathways of progress she had catalysed. Today, the United Nations’ International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the pioneer who paved the way for generations of women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) is one of the many successful women whose work is being celebrated around the world.  The first person in history to receive two Nobel P...

New DNA Technology In USA Providing More Accurate Health Results

We've all had blood tests, and now we can take a DNA test to evaluate our health. This new technology uses blood and saliva samples to measure genetic markers and biomarkers, including hormone and vitamin levels. Doctors can then isolate imbalances and underlying causes allowing them to apply a specific treatment program that go in-line with a patients unique DNA roadmap. The difference between a blood test and this DNA test is that it integrates the genetics of a person, and the results give d...

Lines of Thought: From Darwin to DNA

The University Library is celebrating its 600th anniversary with an exhibition of priceless treasures communicating 4,000 years of human thought. As part of the celebrations, they have commissioned six films on the six distinct themes featured in the exhibition Lines of Thought. In the latest film, we travel from Darwin to DNA, demonstrating how Cambridge and the Cambridge collections have been crucial to the history of how we have understood heredity.   From Darwin’s provisional hypothe...

How These 8 Women Changed The Way We Think About Health

Photo: Courtesy of Ten Speed Press; Illustrated by Rachel Ignotofsky. Think back to your high school biology class. What stuck with you? If your experience was anything like mine, you probably remember all of two things: The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, and a lot of dead white dudes looked into microscopes for hundreds of years to figure that out. For many people — myself included — the intrigue of science is lost at an early age in heavy textbooks, dry lectures, and a cultura...

And the Nobel Prize goes to…

The Red Cross is the organization to receive the most, with three. Martin Luther King was the youngest – until Malala Yousafzai won at the tender age of 17 that is. Jean-Paul Sartre famously won and refused it. Mother Teresa won it but has since been brutally called out since for her inhumane treatment of the poor. Paul Hermann Müller won it in 1948 for the pesticide DDT, which went on to create one of the worst environmental disasters in history. Gandhi was nominated 5 times but never won, dyin...
