Crooked Record

(This post is in honor of my brother-in-law, who is a new blogger, and a welcome voice).

As one studies history, to the extent one does, many times one will come across tidbits like "So And So discovered this or that." It doesn't take much thought to realize that there are almost always other people, some times many other people, who supported and assisted So And So, but this is a particularly striking example of someone doing all the work and getting none of the credit. So, here I go trying to set the record straight, via lazy linking.

  1. Remarkable woman. Those discoveries helped lead the way to finding exoplanets.
